To show how to create a transport rule in Exchange 2013. We show this process by using the Exchange Admin Center.

Video Steps

1. Log into Exchange Admin Center.

First we need to log into the Exchange Admin Center.

2. Navigate to the Mail Flow >> Rules tab.

To create a Mailbox Database we need to navigate to the "Mail Flow" tab on the left hand side. Then we need to click on the "Rules" tab along the top.

3. Click the + "New" button and pick either "Create a new rule" or a template from the drop down.

Click the + "New" button and pick either "Create a new rule" or a template from the drop down. For example, "Apply Disclaimers" template.

4. Enter a rule name.

Enter a display name for the rule.

5. In the "Apply this rule if..." drop down specify the conditions for the rule.

 In the "Apply this rule if..." drop down we will specify the conditions for the rule. These are the conditions that must be met for the rule to trigger. In our example we specify that the rule comes into effect when "The recipient is located..." >> "Outside the organization".

6. In the "Do the following..." drop down specify the actions for the rule.

In the "Do the following..." drop down we will specify the actions for the rule. In our example we "Append the disclaimer...". We then specify the text for this disclaimer and additional fall back settings when the text can not be applied.

7. Specify the mode for the rule.

"Enforce" to make the rule fully active, or, "Test" to log what the rule would have done. We always recommend to test rules before they are put into production. And then examine the logs to see what would have happened if the rule was live.

8. Click the Save button.

 Click the "Save" button to save the rule.

9. Modify the processing priority of the rule.

Using the Up / Down icons you can modify the processing priority of the rule. Zero will be processed first.

10. To edit a rule

Select it and click the "Edit" (pencil) button. Click "Save" once you have made your changes.

11. To delete a rule

Select it and click "Remove" (trashcan) button. Click "Yes" to Confirm.

12. To copy a rule

Select it and click "Copy" (duplicate page) button. Click "Save" once you have made your changes. A new rule is created.
