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.
