    Office 365 Mail Flow Rules in Outlook

    I have a couple of Office 365 Exchange Online Mail Flow rules setup in my Exchange Admin panel. One is for blocking messages from reaching our inboxes (for the overly aggressive spammers).

    Is there a way to access these actual rules from within Outlook, or does it require I make these changes in Exchange Admin panel directly? We're using Outlook '16 for Windows on our systems.

    Thanks!

    If you've setup mail flow rules in Exchange that is where they must be administered.

    I did, so guess I'll need to dip into Exchange when editing them. Thanks for the clarification.

    You can use the Exchange admin app in Office 365. You may be able to use PowerShell but I'm not sure how limited that may be for mail flow in Office 365.

    Sounds good. Is that the Office 365 Admin app on the Windows Store, or is that a different app you're referring to?

    Perfect. I downloaded it and will take it for a spin.

    You can use the online Office 365 portal without installing anything.

    True. I was hoping there'd be a way to do this in Outlook without going to portal but alas, it's not that simple. :-)
