I would like to run a "client-only" rule in outllook 2003 on exchange 2003 but outlook converts them to server based. Basically I get tons of emails from other employees, While I am in the office and have outlook open, I want them automaticcly moved to subfolders. When I am out of the office and connect to exchange with my blackberry I want to see those emails in my inbox.

    No once you are in a domain you can only set server base rule.

    Hi - how about if instead of moving the messages, you moved "copies" of the emails to your subfolders, and kept the originals in your Inbox?  Moving a copy of the message is a setting within the rules, where it seems that you move the entire message today.

    I had exactly the same issue.

    If you're still looking for a solution, I select an additional action of "display desktop alert" for each rule.

    This way the rule can only be processed when Outlook is open.
