Rules in Outlook 2010

Posted on 2014-08-07
Last Modified: 2014-08-08
Running Exchange/Outlook 2010 and I have a mailbox that is configured to send reply emails (a template) whenever it receives an email from a particular recipient. I assume this is a rule setup for this mailbox. The account for this mailbox is disabled and I don't know what the previous password is/was. I could reset the password and gain access to the account, however if at all possible I would like to leave the account in tact for now.

So how can I manage the rules to another account? I need to be able to see the current rules configured for this account and edit one in particular as requested.

    To view the the rules of another mailbox.
    You no need to reset or enable the account.
    Grant Full mailbox permission to that mailbox and configure the mailbox in outlook and use your credentials to login.

    Then you can view or edit the rules of that mailbox now.

    Inbox rules also can be managed in PowerShell, for example with the below commands for typical tasks:

    Listing the existing inbox rules:
    Get-InboxRule -Mailbox

    Remove inbox rule:
    Remove-InboxRule -Mailbox -Identity "TestRuleForward"

    Enable inbox rule:
    Enable-InboxRule "TestRuleForward" -Mailbox

    Disable inbox rule:
    Disable-InboxRule "TestRuleForward" -Mailbox

    Setting a new inbox rule:
    New-InboxRule -name "TestRuleForward" -mailbox -RedirectTo

    Remember if you are using server side rules, there is a defined amount of rule space (64kb is the default, which is roughly enough for 100 rules, depending on complexity of the rules and the length of the names).  The Exchange admin can always allot more space - but be aware of the limitation.
