On having a staff member leave and discovering that they had set up a rule in two of our machines in outlook 2003 to fwd e-mail onto one of our competitors i was wondering if there is a way to limit or lock out the rules option in outlook 2003 running on exchange 2003 in sbs2003.  Ideally i'd like to be able to set the rules then "lock them" so they cannot be altered but still function, then unlock them if needs be for me to change them.

What you describe is not possible natively with Exchange and Outlook, nor is it really feasible, due to the integral nature rules play in Exchange and Outlook.

Yep - I should have said about an alternative earlier. You can disable Automatic Forward on the Exchange Server; this means the auto forward rule won't work, and the forwarded messages won't get outside the Exchange Server.

Exchange System Manager > Global Settings > Internet Message Formats > Default > Properties > Advanced > Allow Automatic Forward > Uncheck.
