Outlook Rules

By dshelton ·
We're running Exchange 5.5 with SP2 and we're having problems getting Outlook to forward messages to a Public Folder. We cannot get it to work as a server side rule. We have to leave a copy of Outlook running for it to move the messages. If we have it just forward the email to an address, it'll work fine, but we cannot get it to copy the messages to a Public Folder without having it opened.

It can't be done directly. Why? the move requires client interaction [hence the "Outlook must be running"].

The only way I've gotten around this is by making it a two step process:
1) Fwd the email
2) delete the email
Cons: the end result email is not from the original sender but from the forwarding account.

Another solution [but I'm assuming your rule identifies the message someway to determine whether to move it - if this is the case, this won't help]
* Setup a smtp address for thepublic folder - the emails route directly to the folder rather than through the mailbox.

It's hard to answer this question without knowing what your objective is.
If you are trying to get mail sent to a specific mailbox into a public folder, then you can set up an alternate recipient on the Exchange server. This will send a copy of any mail sent to the mailbox to the public folder as well. If you don't want two copies of the mail, you can set an additional SMTP address on the public folder that is identical to the mailbox's SMTP address (after removing the mailbox's SMTP address).
If you are doing any kind of filtering (i.e. specific mail only), this whole solution goes out the window. You need to leave outlook running or get some third party application.
