Outlook 2010 Rules and Quick Steps

Can some one explain to me Outlook Rules and Quick Steps for Outlook/Exchange 2010.

Do they replicate back to Exchange Server? Is it possible to view a users Server side rules that have been set? If a user has an Outlook connection from a PC in the office which they have left on, and then connect to Exchange from a laptop so they have 2 Outlook connections and create rules will this cause a conflict?

Thank you

there are two kinds of rules. Server side rule and Client side rules. Default server side rules are created in outlook and syncs with Exchange servers.
No it doesnt create any issues when connections are open from two systems.

Do they replicate back to Exchange Server?
Yes most rules are server side.. and replicate to all versions of outlook that connect to that exchange account
2 Outlook connections and create rules will this cause a conflict? Since the mail always exists on the server  the rules will stay in sync

How do I know which rules have been configured server side, and client side by looking at Outlook?  Can I view these by looking on Exchange which rules the user has configured?

How about Quick Steps, they will be client side only?
