  • Exchange 2003 Server Side Rules - Template push

    Hi, this is my first time here and I am an exchange 2003 noob. My boss has asked me to create a "server side" rule on Exchange 2003 that is hidden or protected from users that will create a template( using RTF ) to kick off whenever the users receive an exchange alert. I know how to create client side rules, but can someone help me with how I can get this done. He would want it packaged in Altiris or any other way to send it out, after it is done. Thank you for your help. Steve

    You can't hide or protect rules.
    If you are using a rule then the user can find it and delete it.
    I also don't think you would be able to make a server side rule use a template, because templates are stored inside Outlook and therefore will be a client side rule.

    Have you attempted to create the rule manually to see if it can be created server side?

    Simon.

      Thanks for the reply.. Well I was able to create a server side rule using a template. I had to just use the option "Have the server reply using a message" and I could create the template there.

      I still haven't found how to "hide or protect" that rule however and an easy way to import it to all users rules via maybe altiris or some other way. Any help would be appreciated and thanks .

        Did you not read what I wrote above?

        "You can't hide or protect rules.
        If you are using a rule then the user can find it and delete it. "

        Therefore most of what you want to do cannot be done.

        I am also not aware of any way of distributing rules to users via any deployment method.

        Simon.

            I do not see anything rude or offensive about either of Sembee's messages.

            Given his world renowned expertise in Exchange, I personally would not doubt anything he says on the subject.

              Sembee probably wrote the articles you read.
