I think it is important to provide a third party tool or allow for more
space. The limit for Outlook rules is 32K, which is absurdly small. Please
provide a fix or a way to up the limit. This is a fantastic feature that can
never reach its potential without more space. If you can point me to to an
"all about rules" article or how-to, it would be greatly appreciated.
