Hi There
My computer is running XP with SP3, outlook 2003 in SBS 2003 environment. I have exported rules to .rwz file, after that I ran outlook.exe /clearnrules, then import the rules from the .rwz file. The result is all rules became client only rules and they are all empty. I tried to run outlook.exe /cleanrules again and reimported rules from the .rwz over again. Same result rules are clients only and empty. I scratched my head and lost lots of hair, any help would be appreciated or I became bald

I'm pretty sure that the problem is that the rules are blank, and the client side classification is simply a symptom of that problem.  

There are specific conditions that must be met in order for a rule to be server based, if they are not then the rule will default to client only.  A blank rule most likely doesn't meet the requirements for server side processing :-)

If you open the .rwz file in notepad, you should see a bunch gobbledy gook, but also make out details such as the name of the rule, it's criteria, and actions such as the target folder if the rule is moving email.  Are you seeing that info in the text file(s)?

It's possible that the export was not successful and you are trying to import "broken" rule files.
