How do i make rules client side only

Hi,

I have just moved an business from pop3 delivery to office 365 (running Outlook 2013 as the client). The boss has many (>200) rules, but he does not want the rules applied on the server - because he wants to be able to see the raw inbox feed on his blackberry.

So is there a way that I can force all rules to be client side, and moreover can I change >200 rules at once.

thanks for your time

You won't be able to modify that many rules at once through Outlook. You can look at doing this with a third-party tool such as the Power Rules Manager add-in for Outlook which many of my clients have had great experiences with, however I can't say I've ever seen it used it to simultaneously convert a large amount of rules to be client-side only. Maybe try downloading the 14-day trial and see if it can do this.
