You will have to delete/remove some of your other rules.  (Why: it sounds like you connect to a microsoft exchange server.  users are only permitted a 32kb storage area for rules and it can't be changed.)

Sometimes you can modify rules to combine several rules into one . You may also store rules on your PC, but they will not be carried out until you open your mail at your desk.

Review your rules and see what can be deleted, or combined to reduce the amount of space the rulles take. I went over my rules the other day and found old rules that I didn't need anymore, they were doing nothing, so I removed them. Just knowing how mnay rules I have, I can only imagine how many rules you must have to have run out of space.

You can't increase it, but you can make better use of what you have. I look at rules like writing a program.  Some simple rules can only be done one way, but many simplke rules can sometimes be combined to one more complicated rule. If you look at all your rules, you might have a way to weed out, and combine rules to take up less space.
