    Question Microsoft Outlook 2003 local rules with Exchange???

    Hi!

    I have a little problem:

    I work with Outlook 2003 and an Exchange 2003 Server.
    On an Exchange Server exists a rule limitation.
    For this reason I need a plug in for Outlook to sort all my emails in special folders.

    Or does anyone knows how I can save my rules local and not on the Exchange Server?


    Regards,

    rules are all stored on the exchange server - if you want to get something specific for outlook then write a com add-in to do what you want.
    http://www.slipstick.com/ has some ready written com add-ins etc plus info on how to write your own.

    well if you want free you'll have to learn C and how to write com+ apps...otherwise it's on the companies tab right?
    PHP and XML
    Let's talk about SAX

    some things on slipstick are free but some com add-ins take a lot of time to write - so why should they be free? If you know any VB, C++ etc then you can get started and write your own - for what you wanted in this question then you can use VB and use the methods and properties of the outlook object model to make exactly what you want. I've written quite a lot of add-ins using VB and if you modularise your code then you often re-use stuff for other add-ins saving time.
