  • Outlook Rules and Alerts does not work with RPC over HTTP

    My Outlook 2003 client is connected to the Exchange 2003 server via RPC over HTTPS.

    When I am in the office I can set up "Rules and Alerts" and use set up the "Out of Office Assistant". However, when I am out the office Outlook tells me "You are currently working offline. To use this command, you must go online and connect to the Microsoft Exchange Server". But the Outlook client tells me I am connected to the server at the bottom right hand corner.

    Does anyone tell me why this is?

    Could be a corrupt setting and/or profile. Have you tried setting them to offline, then online?

    Is it only happening to you, or to multiple people?

      Yes, I have tried setting the Outlook client to "offline" and the back to "online" - no difference.

      I am not the only one in my company that has this problem, there are at least 3 people that have reported the same problem.

        There are no restrictions on the behaviour of rules with RPC over HTTPS. Therefore I would have to suspect that it is a corrupt Outlook profile and would advise a recreation. In fact - anything odd happening to Outlook a new profile usually fixes it.
