Outlook rules replicate to other outlook instalations

Hi All!

I have a SBS 2003 Instalation with an email account that is accessed by three workstations at the same time.  All three need to see the incominbg email when it arrives, and be able to deal with it.

I have also set a rule on one of the workstations to print each e-mail as it comes in.  

Unfortunately, that rule is getting replicated to each of the 3 instalations of Outlook - so when an email comes in, we wind up with 3 copies -- one from each workstation.

How can I stop this behavior?  If I delete the rule from one, it gets deleted from all -- even though these are client side rules.  I could understand this behavior if the rule was on the server, but I don't believe it is -- unless I'm misunderstanding something.

Any thoughts?
