Start rules with vba

Hi!

I would like to start the rules from a vba program.

I have 2 Clients running (one at the office, one at home), both are collecting emails. Every two hours, the home client dials into our exchange server and syncs the emails. This new emails are not considered as new and therefor the rules are not aplyed automatically. I have added a button to "apply rules now", but this opens a dialog, where I have to select, which rules a want to apply (and I have a lot of rules). So I would like to have a vba program to do this.

Thanks,
Rasty

The rules wizard isn't exposed to developers.  So the big question is how is the machine @ home configured? (e.g. is it using Offline folders or is connecting via a POP or IMAP connection?)  I would be surprised that rules are working on the offline setup because when creating the rules online, they generally become server side rules.  The server performs the actions regardless if the client is logged in or not.

The machine at home uses an offline folder. But the problem is, that the server does not apply the rules for mails, which the machine at home poped from some pop3 servers and then synchronized to the exchange server. And I don't want the exchange server to pop this accounts. So I was looking for a handy way to start the rules processing by hand (without clicken checkboxes for every rule).

ah... the only thing you can have the user do at this point is create a profile for each transport so the internet email service ends up with local rules.
