Outlook 2007 rules: if you select client side, how can you change to server side?
Posted on 2008-10-09
Transitioning to Exchange 2007.
Some confusion on the error message that when we go to Tools | rules and alerts - we get a message saying that we can only have one set of rules, client side or server side. What determines our choice? If someone selects client side, how do we change that back to server side?
Some threads indicate that the designation of server side vs client side rules is automatic depending on the rule action.... if that is the case, why are we forced to select client or server?
I understand the concept that some rules are best run server side, while others are run client side, but what I don't understand is if that is the case, why are we being asked to choose one or the other across the board.
If someone can put that in words I can understand it would be greatly appreciated.
