Icons displayed for configured rules in Outlook

          Looking at the symbols of rules, you see several rules which have the hammer and wrench icon while others don’t.What is the meaning of this icon and the other icons you see in the Rules and Alerts dialog?

Some actions have a unique symbol to indicate the action that is configured for the rule. For all other actions, the the hammer and wrench icon will be displayed.
