I am running MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 and I wanted to create a basic rule that would look for the word "Monitoring" in a message subject and move it to a "Monitoring" mailbox if it was found. I created this rule and nothing happened to either my existing messages or new incoming messages.

When I select a message and click "Apply Rules" nothing happens. I deleted all other rules to be sure that nothing was preventing other rules from being applied - and even with my rule as the only rule available messages are not moved under any circumstances.

What do I need to do to get my rules to work?

    Make a screen shot of the rule you have created showing all the steps and what account it is associated with. That will help us help you. – Steve Chambers Mar 26 '18 at 15:33
  • I suggest using gmail filters. If you can't figure out how to use those, open a question on stack webapps.stackexchange.com and link it here and I'll help there. – JBallin Mar 27 '18 at 20:43
