Exporting rules to an Exchange 2010 server after a DB crash

Hello,

I had a problem with a database under Exchange 2010, so I had to recreate a new database to recreate blank mailboxes for each user.

I then used Stellar's software to retrieve emails and export PSTs to restore to Exchange.

Only concern I no longer have the rules (of referral, classification, etc.) created by users, would you have a solution so that I can retrieve these rules ?

Thank you for your answers,

Regards,
Jordan

are you talking about outlook rules?

If you configured outlook new profile, rules should gone as they remain with profile

I'm talking about Outlook rules.
Okay, so the only solution is to export via Outlook ?  On the server side, nothing is possible ?

Thanks for your help, so I'll check with the users to have them do the manipulation on their side.

from outlook, you can create few rules server side as well, if user has created any of those, he may get back those rules

Its really difficult to identify which rule is server side and which rule is client side

If user creates any rule from OWA, those rules are always server side rules and apply regardless user use outlook or not

Whenever outlook is required for rule action rule should be considered as client side
