Is it possible to utilize Outlook's Rules and Alerts feature without being connected to Exchange? For example if Exchange is down and there is a need to a create a new spam filter.

Please elaborate your question. I am not able to make any scenario out of this. If Exchange server is down and outlook is disconnected , there will be no mails on which rules can be applied.

As long as creation of rules is concerned we do have client side rules in Outlook which we can create any time regardless of the connectivity with Exchange.

You are currently working offline. To use this command, you must go online and connect to Microsoft Exchange.
