This is a tricky one (well, I think it is, anyway).  Do you already know how to access a mailbox in VBScript?  If so, then you need to look for hidden messages in the Inbox with the property http://schemas.microsoft.com/exchange/outlookmessageclass = "IPM.Rule.Message" .  The only person I know that has reverse-engineered the rule contents is Glen Scales:

I'd love to see if anyone else here can do this.

I'm not sure how much use this will be to you, but if you have Exchange 2003, you can see a list of the rules by going direct to the rules page URL:
