  • Outlook/Exchange 2003: Cannot Delete Rules or Set Out of Office Message

    Hi,
    I have one user that has multiple rules in outlook and is trying to setup an "Out of Office Assistant" message for this week.

    When we setup the message in Outlook 2K3 we get an error "Changes to the rule could not be saved. There is not enough memory or the rules are too complex. Try deleting some rules.".

    When i delete his rules, it states that only one set of rules can be kept "Server or Client". Whichever option i chose, the rules always propagate back into outlook and he continues to have the same issue.

    I haven't experienced this with any other user.

    Also, even after killing the profile, offline folders, whatever i do...it comes back.

    How can i remove his rules and set this out of office message?

    I'm running Exchange 2K3 Sp2.

    Thanks!!!

      After further research i guess my question is:

      How do i remove a users rules from server/client if they refuse to remove.

      What Exchange tool or trick can i use to remove them?

      OR, do i need to recreate this users mailbox and start fresh?

      Thanks!

        Resolved.

        I used this program called outlook spy and it actually was able to delete all rules.

        i was then able to set out of office reply.
