How to make a global rule that is common to everyone or distribute a rule to all clients

When the e-mail viruses come in and Norton A/V catches them, I can have it change the subject of a message or flag it in a certain way. I'd like to be able to have a server-side Outlook rule that permanently deletes the e-mail based on that new subject or flag, so the user isn't even aware a virus was sent to their box. This global rule could be useful in other ways, as well, but that's the current goal.

Now, I'm thinking that if I can't create one global rule, maybe I can manage the clients' rules or distribute the new rule to them, rather than going around and adding the rule to each computer, one-by-one. Can this be done by policies or something? How do I do this?

By the way, I know I can use the ExMerge tool to "sweep" through everyone's mailboxes and remove a specific message, but I want this process to be automatic rather than manually running ExMerge over and over again. That's why I'm looking for a rule-based solution.

You could create a test mailbox.
Then create the rule that you want.
Then Export the rule. This will be to a file with a .RWZ extension I think.
Then you can email this to all of your users along with the instructions for importing this.

Hope this helps.

I'd really rather not rely on the users to import the rule. Some of them don't know how and won't do it and won't say anything.

Don't know of an easy answer for you to this one. Mailbox Management policy maybe?
