Exchange 2007 - Create rule to assign categories to incoming mail in public folder


We have a mail-enabled public folder in Exchange 2007.
Is it possible to set a server-side rule that says, 'If there's incoming e-mail from sender "X", assign "this category" to it'. The categories should be visible to all the users who have access to the said public folder.

The senders will all be domain users, by the way, and they use Outlook 2010.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You cannot do this with a mail enabled public folder. You will only be able to do this via mailbox or shared mailbox. You do this setting up Outlook Rules. There are no transport rules available to categorize mail going into a public folder.

See the PAQ i just answered yesterday.
