Dear Experts,

With regards to Outlook 2007 server-side rules, is it possible to view said rules from the exchange server (Exchange 2007).

Thanks,

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

You're too kind.  Perhaps it'll come up in future searches regarding Exchange 2010 and Inbox rules.

This has now been sorted.

Basically the outlook client thought the mailbox had different rules Vs the rules the server thought the mailbox had. Therefore there was a conflict, and we could only resolve by closing all instances of the mailbox and then loading it back up. When going into rules and alerts, it noticed the rules on the client were different to those on the server. I chose server, and from then on all mailboxes instances had the server rules. Which is what I wanted.

I have not answered my own question (because I did not give all the details), but at the same time no one gave me good information as per my question. So I have given my points to Dan, who gave a useful tip as per amitjulshrestha mentioned.

Thanks,
