OL Rules: OWA or Client Side?
Posted on 2008-06-22
I'm looking for some clarification on how to setup several OL forward/redirect rules, please.
I'm using OL 2003 on my notebook and Exchange 2007 Webmail for my OWA rules.
I understand that a rule set-up via OWA runs on the server regardless whether (or not) I have OL open on my notebook.
What I don't understand is how several forwarding rules that I have set-up on my notebook still appear to run even if the notebook does not have OL open.
Am I missing something, please?
Why this has me confused is that I'd rather NOT have to deal with OWA rules if I can simply configure everything from my notebook (e.g., forward all messages with "X,Y,Z" in the subject to "Mike@123").
What am I missing that my current forwarding ruels seem to be working even when OL is not running?
Post Script: In poking at this some more, I think my question should have been:
Do I need to log into OWA (via the web) in order to configure OL rules that I want to run all the time (even when my notebook is off) or can I simply use my OL 2003 Tools to configure these rules?
Apologies for the lack of clarity.
