Microsoft Exchange Server and cusotm scripts

I am using Outlook 2003 with Exchange Server (ver 2002 I think).

I have sucessfully created rules that run on my PC and server-based rules that run on the Exchnage server.  I have also successfully created a custom macro that is called as part of a rule.  My problem is that I cannot get the custom rule to run on the Exchange Server.  It is always designated as a client-rule.  

Is there something special I must do to create custome scripts on the seerver?

Thanks in advance

I am pretty sure that isn't going to run on the Exchange server. VBA is a client tool and will require Outlook to interprete it.
You should look at Event Sinks instead. Microsoft have a load of information on creating those. It should be able to do the same thing for you - but is a server based tool.

If this rule is pointing to a pst at all it can only be a client side rule.

I believe that the rule is pointing to the server mailbox.  The rule is simple.  It fires upon new mail in the server inbox and the action is to run my custom script.

What is the script actually doing and what have you written it in?
You are very limited on what you can get Exchange to do on the server for responding to email messages so there is a good chance that you will not get it to work.

Sembee,

I am using VBA to reformat the message.  I am consensing the message into a more precise subject.  This is important for people using Blackberries.
