  • I'm sorry, I don't understand. Do you mean it moves it to the wrong folder? Or doesn't move it at all? Or do you get an error? – Erin L Aug 15 '16 at 16:24

  • yes, I read your comments before I post my answer , but you mention at your question Can i set up a rule in outlook to move or Copy certain emails Directly to a SharePoint List folder when they come in ? not to task list also it's VBA code not as OOTB SharePoint and outlook, so if you applied the above walkthrough you can build rule to forward emails to document library email from outlook I also mentioned how to configure that , Hope it helps you , – Mohamed El-Qassas MVP Aug 15 '16 at 17:40
