Excluding or Un-Excluding Emails from Capture

Email Capture has the ability to exclude email addresses, domains and even subjects from future captures, meaning if you are receiving junk emails or personal emails, you can prevent these items from being captured into Migration Manager.

Excluding emails from Email Capture has no effect on emails within Microsoft Outlook.  Excluding emails will simply prevent these emails from being copied from Outlook into Migration Manager.

To Exclude or Un-Exclude Emails, you need to be in the Email Capture Window. From the Main Toolbar, click the Capture Button.

1. Excluding Domains

Excluding a Domain will exclude ALL emails from that Domain.  For example, if you exclude the Domain for an email from [email protected]hotmail.com, then ALL future emails from Hotmail.com will be excluded. This function is great for excluding particular businesses from being captured, but you do need to be weary when excluding webmail Domains like Hotmail, Gmail etc as future potential client emails will not be captured.

1.1. Highlight the Email and Exclude Domain

Once the email is highlighted, you can either:

  • Right click on the Email, then select Exclude Domain.
  • Or click on the Exclude Domain button on the Toolbar.

1.2. Confirm the action

You will be warned of the Exclusion to take place and asked to confirm by clicking Yes.

2. Excluding Email Addresses

Excluding Email Addresses will only affect the email addresses you have highlighted to exclude.  These particular email addresses will no longer we considered in future captures.

2.1. Highlight the Email and Exclude Email Address

Once the email is highlighted, you can either:

  • Right click on the Email, then select Exclude Email Address.
  • Or click on the Exclude Email Address button on the Toolbar.

2.2. Confirm the action

You will be warned of the Exclusion to take place and asked to confirm by clicking Yes.

3. Excluding Subjects

Excluding Subjects is done from within the Email Capture Settings itself.  This function will exclude any emails with that subject from future captures.
