How to Chain two rules together using counters
Sometimes you need to execute a rule from another rule. For example, you may have one rule scanning messages for a Subject that contains certain words or phrases. When this condition is matched, you want to execute another rule that deletes all messages from a particular sender.
This can be accomplished using Auto-Mate's built-in counters. The first rule will scan for messages containing a subject with certain words. When matched, a counter will be incremented. The second rule will looks for messages from a certain sender AND a counter value that is greater than or equal to 1 (this value was set by the first rule).
Here are the relevant settings for the first rule:
