Hello, I am fairly noobish at Outlook/Exchange.

I would like to create a server-side rule that runs a script when an e-mail is received. Is it possible to do this and if so, where would I store the code to be executed?

It depends®. What version of Exchange and what do you want the server-side rule to do?

Well, it's Outlook 2007 - I don't know if that indicates the version of Exchange or not.

I would like the server side rule to call a script when an e-mail is received in a shared mailbox to change the subject line of the e-mail.

OK - The IT department at my company will not support this type of rule at a server level anyways.

I am going to set up a dedicated machine that will create a client-only rule on the mailbox to execute a sub routine when an e-mail is received.
