Deleting Email Rules in Outlook (Office 365)


Students, faculty, and staff have the ability to create rules in their USJ Outlook email account. When the rules are no longer needed, or the client was not the person that created them, the rules need to be deleted.


All Students, Faculty, and Staff.


1. Open a Web Browser, preferably Firefox.

2. Search

3. Login with your USJ Credentials.

4. Click Outlook.

5. Click on the Settings icon in the top right corner of the tool bar.

6. Click on View all Outlook Settings.

7. Click on Rules.

8. In the rule you want to delete, click the trash can icon.

9. Click OK.

10. Close the Settings window.

Rules are powerful tools to help organize your mailbox.  You can use an Outlook rule to file emails automatically and be more time efficient.  However, sometimes particular rules are no longer needed, or were created in error.  This process facilitates the removal of those rules.
