Microsoft 365 - View Inbox Rules
Use the instructions below to view inbox rules (filters) configured for an account.
Important: This action will only see rules/filters that have been configured at the account (server) level. If there are rules/filters created within a client which are not stored on the Office 365 server, they will not appear within this view. You must view those rules/filters using the client which created them.

- Log into Outlook on the web.
