Do you have broken rules and feel limited by the Outlook rules manager? The Power Rules Manager add-in for Microsoft® Outlook® simplifies managing your Outlook rules. Your rules will be shown in a clear and simple grid so you can take control of your rules.
The add-in is effectively an Outlook rules editor, plus it allows you to quickly find specific rules, sort the rules alphabetically (or by the folder, or any other grid column header), and you can import/export rules.
The add-in also helps you to save space in your Outlook rules by making it easy to consolidate your rules. Not only does it have the ability to sort your rules by the folders involved so you can quickly see which rules are similar, but you can now simply click the “Consolidate Rules” button to have rules that have identical actions merged into a single rule! Merging Outlook rules saves a lot of space. For instance, if you know that you have three rules that move messages into a particular folder, but based on different conditions, then those three rules can be coalesced into a single rule with all three conditions.
Adds a toolbar button directly into Outlook for easy access to your rules
Easily sort Outlook rules by name, what order they run, by the folders involved in the rule, by the people involved in the rule, and more
Set Execution Order feature allows you to easily set the execution order of all your rules at once
Print your Outlook rules
Easily edit rules inline in the grid
Save Outlook rules to a plain text file (TXT), a comma delimited file (CSV), or Microsoft® Excel® (XLS) formats
Find/Find Next feature allows you to quickly hone in on the rules that matter most to you
Backup and Restore your rules (to an editable XML file)
Bulk replace folders to all your rules at once
Fix rules with the Validate Folders and People button
Save space in your Outlook rules with the Consolidate Rules and the Find and Repair Duplicate Rules button
Easily execute selected (or all) Outlook rules against folders you select
Works with Microsoft Exchange Server but doesn't require it
Works with Office 365, Outlook 2019, 2016, 2013 and 2010 (64-bit and 32-bit) and Outlook 2007
There are five validation checks built into the add-in. You can flag duplicate rule names, find and repair duplicate rules, validate and automatically correct missing Stop actions, verify folders and contacts involved in each rule, and consolidate/merge your rules. Each of these checks has their own button so you can invoke them separately to check Outlook rule consistency at any time. The Validate Stop Actions feature alone is worth the price of the add-in because it will flag all the rules that have a move action but no corresponding stop processing more rules action. Not having a stop processing more rules action is a primary reason for getting duplicate emails.
"I have nearly 900 Outlook rules that I use every day (obviously not through an Exchange Server!). This was a nightmare to manage using Outlook alone. Power Rules Manager turned my Outlook rules nightmare into a dream. I really appreciate this product! Sperry Software and Power Rules Manager deserve a 5 star rating all around!" - Gary D. Collier, IN, United States

"My use of the trials of Power Rules Manager and Add Email Address were successful, and that's why I'm buying them. Power Rules Manager solved a problem I had with a rule that became corrupted and was moving all incoming messages from 20 email addresses into one folder. It couldn't be found with Outlook 2016 Manage Rules. Power Rules Manager fixed that problem in just a few seconds." - Ronald Ogg from CA, United States
