I have just maxed out the rules for iCloud (99 rules allowed). On the Mac you can have more complex rules so you can have one rule that says basically if I get an e-mail from (Lands End, L.L. Bean, Amazon, etc) file the e-mail into my "Stores" folder. However on iCloud rules you need one rule for each store. I prefer using iCloud for the rules so they are sorted before they get to my Mac. This way they are sorted if I check my mail from an iPad or another Mac or on the Web. However, I didn't know until this morning that iCloud has a limit of 99 rules. So now I need to decide what is the best way to adjust.


So my question here is how do you manage rules to sort e-mail?

    It really doesn't matter where you manage your rules, whatever happens on one device will be synced to all other devices.

    This is true if your main computer is always on and connected to the internet. However where I live currently we have frequent power outages and internet connectivity issues. Some of these problems require my to restart routers in order to fix the problem. However, if I am traveling away from home I am not able to do this. In a case like this if my rules are on my main Mac at home and I am checking e-mail from an iPad of Macbook Pro on the road no rules will run.




    Anyone else have thoughts on this?
