How to rename rules in Outlook?

Let’s say you are going to create a rule to delete email messages automatically by special words in subjects or bodies. If you do not specify a rule name, this rule will be named with those specified words automatically, while other rules will be named with their conditions or actions automatically. See the following screen shot.

Some auto rule names usually are too long to be recognized if there are many specified conditions included in the rules. Actually, Microsoft Outlook supports the feature of renaming rules. This article is an easy tutorial about how to rename rules in Microsoft Outlook quickly.
