    From my experience you can't set up a rule in the app. You need to set it up in your web mail (browser) to have it take effect in app.

    Other with more experience with this app, and the information you provided may have a different answer.

    Did a little more research. By ymail I assume you mean Yahoo. At least that is what I got when I search.

    If Yahoo, open your mail in a browser. Open the mail you want to build a rule for. In Yahoo it is called a filter. Click on "More" across the top.
    Then click on Filter emails like this.

    A pain to have to switch to browser but once set you can forget.
