Setting a Rule's Priority?

The classic interface had a box to set a rule's priority. Where is it in the current interface?

Thanks.

Arrow Drag and drop Organize rules

Hi, Ellen. Please read the notice at the bottom of the Rules page:
Quote:
The first organize rule whose conditions are met will apply to the message. Drag and drop to reorder.

Arrow Additional tips for rules

I know what you mean, Ellen! I also have many rules. Here are some additional tips:
  • Only one (at the most) Discard rule is executed. You can't change the order of execution (which usually isn't important).
  • Several Forward rules can operate on a single message. You can not change the order of execution (which usually isn't important).
  • Only one (at the most) Organize rule (which move messages to folders) is executed. You can drag the Organize rules to change their execution order.
  • You can edit any rule and temporarily disable it. You can then enable it at a later time. This is a very useful feature.
