Outlook 2007 Pro Plus connecting to Exchange 2007 server.

Hi,

I'm trying to setup a rule in Outlook to delete any email that arrives that
isn't from a specific address (this isn't an anti-spam measure). When I try
to setup the rule it will only allow a client-only rule. I want this to be a
server side rule as this will be an unattanded mailbox. Why won't it let me
do it?

Apply this rule after the message arrives
perminantly delete it
except if from emailaddress@somwwhere.com
stop processing more rules

Thanks.

Hi,

I can't see why it would need the client, its just an SMTP address. I've
even tried changing the rule to "except with emailaddress@somewhere.com in
the sender's address", but to no avail.

I'm a bit stumped?

Thanks.

Thanks.
