Global Mail Rules for Exchange

Posted on 2012-09-05

Our client has started using McAfee's rebranded MX Logic solution.  They offer an email continuity feature, which essentially caches emails in the event that communication with the exchange server is lost (outage), so that users can still access their emails online.

The emails received and sent while in Continuity mode is all pushed to the exchange server when it re-establishes communication.  The emails, while in continuity mode are tagged as follows [inbox] [sent] etc.  The quirk is, once connection to Exchange is re-established, the spam filter/ McAfee has no way to tell Exchange/Outlook which emails go to which folders.  I want to try and set up a rule on the global level, that any emails coming in with the [inbox] tag in front of the subject line will go to inbox, [sent] to Sent folder, etc.

I know we can do this on the individual level via Outlook, but I'm wanting to do in globally.  I've done some looking around and have not yet found a good solution.

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.  Please let me know if additional clarification is required.

    Version of Exchange?
    Although I don't think there is a good solution that you will find. I haven't heard of anyone using this type of solution with Exchange before.

    how about powershell that can rerun quickly on everyone?

    so you can use

    get-mailbox | new-inboxrule .....


    warning: When you create, modify, remove, enable, or disable an Inbox rule on Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, any client-side rules created by Microsoft Outlook are removed.
