Outlook Server-side Rules vs. Client-side Rules

Hi- i'm running exchange server 2003 with about 12 Outlook clients.  We are trying to create a rule to move "possible spam" email (which has been tagged "possible spam" through our email gateway) into a "possible spam" folder for each client.  Each time i create the rule, it works fine.  But it says it is a "client-only" rule and won't run unless the Outlook client is running.  

How can we make this a server-side rule so that the clients outlook doesnt have to be open for this to work?

thanks!

Go to your server in Exchange System Manager, right-click your server, choose Properties, and on the General tab you ll see it there

just make sure if you are installing SP2 for Exchange Server 2003,you are on Server 2003 or  2000 Server Service Pack 4 (SP4).

You can go straight to SP2 for Exchange 2003. The service packs are cumulative.

If you have another product that is doing spam filtering then you may want to ask them if they have developed an Exchange event sink to filter the email. Event Sinks are the closest you will get to global rules without visiting every machine.
