Outlook Sending a copy of outgoing emails to another account using Outlook Rules

There may be a situation where you wish to have a copy of all emails sent from a specific email account sent to another email account. This rule must be set up on the computer where the emails are being sent from.

The information is provided as a courtesy to LPH hosting services clients. If (after following the instructions) you are unable to set-up your email rules, please consult Microsoft Outlook Help. If you are not able to set-up or edit your Outlook Rules please contact your IT support resource. LPH doesn't have the support staff--nor charge fees-- that allow for support staffing to solve email rule issues on client computers.
