Ok, we use 2 way pagers here at work. I need to be able to create a rule, so when certain mail arrives, it gets sent to the pager.

How do i create a rule that sends all email sent to the inbox, to the pager .  Pager has an email address like 302 -555-1212@pager.com

Thanks

The following is based on Outlook 2002 and may vary slightly with different versions:

- Go to Tools and select Rules Wizard.
- Click "New" to create a new rule.
- Select the "Start from a blank rule" option and make sure "Check messages as they arrive" is selected and click next.
- If there are specific conditions that apply to this rule (i.e. only forward emails from certain people or with certain keywords), you can select it on this screen.  If you want the rule to apply to ALL email, then simply click Next without selecting a rule.
- You want to forward the email to the email address of the pager on this screen, so check the "Forward it to people or distribution list" option, then click the associated underlined portion in the rule description to configure the email address that it will forward to.
- Add any exceptions (if needed) and click next.
- You can now name your rule and finish the process.

The rule should run on the server even when Outlook is closed.  Here's a snippet from the help file for reference:

<snip>
If you use Microsoft Exchange Server, it can apply rules even if you do not have Outlook running. The rules must be set to be applied to messages "when you receive them in the Inbox" on the server, and the rules must be able to be completed on the server. For example, a rule cannot be applied on the server if the action requires moving a message to a folder in a personal folder file. If a rule cannot be applied on the server, it is applied when you start Outlook. Rules that cannot be run on the server have the words "client only" added to the end of the name. Rules that are marked "client only" are applied after all other rules. If your list of rules contains rules that can be run on the server as well as those that cannot, the rules on the server are applied first, and then all of the other rules are applied.

Hope this helps,

Keith
