Increasing polling interval for Client Only Rules

I have a batch of Client Only rules in Outlook.

These rules all work on emails received in to the inbox. They do a whole host of things like flag, add followups and move them.

Because of items such as flagging they have to Client Only rules rather than server based.

However there is a delay of around 15-30 seconds before it acts on the rule.

so my question is how can I increase the polling interval. Basically I'm not bother about tieing up the PC as this is all it does 24/7

Hi, philpottm.

There are no such thing as a polling interval for rules.  Rules fire when messages are received or sent.  The send/receive event triggers the rules, not a timer.  I know there is sometimes a delay between the time a message arrives and the rule taking action.  However, that's not a polling issue, it's an "as soon as Outlook can get to it" issue.  there are no settings that control this behavior.
