Is there a guide to email rule composition

Is there a guide somewhere to writing rules concerning the organiation of email boxes -- especially the Inbox?  For example, how would I write a rule that would automatically trash emails from a particular address (a setting which I could continualy add email addresses to).  Womething like:  "If from ......  address"   "Then move message to Junk."

Re: Is there a guide to email rule composition

 Most email programs are pretty similar in terms of how to set up a filter.  The specific criteria may differ a lot, but they all basically do the same things.  In the Comcast email-----------------

 

Assuming you are still in the old email format-------------

From your Inbox page, go to Preferences>>>>>>Email>>>>>>>>Email Filters. Click on that, and then follow the prompts to set up a filter for that sender. One of the options is "Discard", which dumps any emails from that sender and you just never see them.

If you are in the new format, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner of the screen, then on Settings. There you will see Filter Rules. Click on that and follow the prompts. In the new format, you can just pick "Discard" as the action same as with the old format. 

 

You also might find this of interest, from the older Zimbra format, but which also mostly applies to the new one-----------------
