 +====== Moving Messages in Windows Live Mail ======
 +
 +  * 1. By default Windows Live Mail does not display the menu bar. Click the **Menus** button (at the top right of the window, next to the **?** button) then click **Show menu bar** to display the menu bar.
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-101.png }}
 +
 +
 +  * 2. Select **Tools** then **Message rules** then **Mail**
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-102.png }}
 +
 +  * 3. The **New Mail Rule** window appears.
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-103.png }}
 +
 +  * 4. Windows Live Mail cannot use the //X-Text-Classification// header, which would allow mail filtering to occur completely in the background. So instead, click **Where the Subject line contains specific words** and also click **Move it to the specified folder**.
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-105.png }}
 +
 +  * 5. Scroll down the actions list (under **Select one or more actions**) and select **Stop processing more rules**
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-106.png }}
 +
 +
 +  * 6. Now click the blue highlighted **contains specific words** link and the **Type Specific Words** dialog appears.
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-107.png }}
 +
 +  * 7. Enter the name of one of your buckets, surrounded by **[** and **]**. By default POPFile uses square brackets to surround the bucket name but you can use the ADVANCED page in the POPFile User Interface to change this behaviour (the //bayes_subject_mod_left// and //bayes_subject_mod_right// settings).
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-108.png }}
 +
 +  * 8. Now click **Add** and then **OK** to close the **Type Specific Words** dialog.
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-110.png }}
 +
 +  *  9. Click the the blue highlighted **specified** link in //"Move it to the **specified** folder"// and the **Move** dialog appears. Click the folder these messages are to be moved to. The **New Folder** button can be used to create a new folder if required.
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-112.png }}
 +
 +  * 10. Click **OK** to close the **Move** dialog.
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-113.png }}
 +
 +  *11. Replace the default name for this rule with a more meaningful name
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-114.png }}
 +
 +  * 12. Click **Save rule** to close the **New Mail Rule** window.
 +
 +{{ howtos:wlm-popfile-115.png }}
 +
 +To repeat the process for another bucket, click the **New** button in the **Rules** window. When all the necessary rules have been created, click **OK** and you're done!
 +
 +**Note:** In the [[http://127.0.0.1:8080/buckets| POPFile web interface]], under the **Buckets** tab, make sure **Subject Header Modification** is turned on for all buckets you want to be able to use Windows Live Mail filters on.  Messages you want to keep in your inbox do not need Subject Modification. The current setting for each bucket is shown by the checkboxes in the **Subject Header Modification** column. If a setting is **On** for a bucket you will see a tick in the checkbox.
