Running Scripts in Outlook 2010

I have designed a script to save the content of an email into a text file.  This works well as a macro and with a bit of tinkering it now also runs as part of a rule.  The rule looks at the subject line of an email on arrival and providing the email subject matches then a text file is automatically created and appears in the destination folder :-)

The problem is that it is a client side rule so Outlook must be running for the rule to work.  The problem is that I have two Outlook Profiles and the rule is not running in the default Profile that I run most of the time.  Is there a way of processing the script server side so that the job is processed when Outlook in the default profile?

No, whenever you add a function in a rule that isn't able to run server, you will see the Client-Side warning appear.
Especially with extra code, be it VBA or an external program. Not only would the code mostly fail (you might save the text file in c:\temp\text.txt, which would probably work on your local computer, but on the server, you don't have access to that), it's a major security risk to let users run their code on the server.
