    Client-side vs. Server-side Rules (XP)

    Client-side vs. Server-side Rules - how does outlook decide which is which. I have created a bunch of rules and most of them seem to be client side. However, I just know there are some server side ones too. For example, different things happen to my mail if I am connected or off line and relicate. All answers to my posts here go straight to a specific folder but I only see them if I am connected.

    I've also found a way to archive rules, but again, only client side rules. This after I lost all of them <img src=/S/sigh.gif border=0 alt=sigh width=15 height=15> and had to recreate them. Funny how I could see my server based ones then.

    <hr>how does outlook decide which is which<hr>
    Rules that can be completely executed by the server are server-side. For example, move to another forlder in the exchange store, out of office assistant, etc.
    Rules become client-side when something in the rule has to be done locally, such as, moving to a pst, playing a sounds, performing a custom action, etc.

    I can tell you that there's a pretty tight per user size limit for server rules - but not much more, as I haven't had a chance to look at Exchange server side for some time. HTH

    Update:With Exchange Server 2003, there is no longer a limit on server-side rules.
