Scripts run on clients only. To have a "script" run on the server you need something called a Sink, an event will fire up some software to do a specific task. Sounds good but this piece of software must be very carefully written and tested otherwise it can actually sink the complete server. Your best shot would be to start from the client side and have the script running in Outlook. Here's some sites with excellent scrips to start off from:
