  • Exchange 2010 - Deny creation of Outlook Rules


    I have created a user on my DC and a mailbox on my Exchange 2010 server. I know I can right click on the user within the Exchange Management Console and choose "Manage Send As Permission" and "Manage Full Access Permission". However, what I want to be able to do is to allow other users to read and forward e-mails from this mailbox (which will be set as as "additional mailbox" without Outlook.) but I want to be able to stop them creating any rules which AUTOMATICALLY forward e-mails etc... but I DO want them to be able to MANUALLY forward e-mails etc.

    Am I asking a bit much of my Exchange Server here? If possible I'd prefer not to have to change settings on each individual Outlook profile which will be using this Mailbox as that could become a pain!

    Thanks very much for any ideas!

    I am not aware of any way to block rule creation.
    Blocking forwarding - the only thing you can do there is block at the org level forwarding to an external recipient. internal will still work.

    If you add the mailbox as an additional mailbox, rather than an additional account, then the users will not have access to the rules engine, although they will not get notifications on that shared mailbox either.
    You can block rule creation in OWA for that user account.

      Sembee you are totally right there, I added the mailbox as an additional mailbox and its not possible to create rules which is exactly what I wanted. Thanks a lot
