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.
