Using Outlook 2007 with an Exchange Server.

I am trying to setup a server-side rule, but regardless of what I do, it always sets up a client-only rule.

I am trying to copy a message to a folder if it comes from a certain person and the subject contains certain words.

What am I missing?

Update: It seems that setting the rule to mark the message read-only forces the message to be client-side. Anyway to get around that?

You should write ALL the rules you are using if you want help. It's not good updating/adding information after people try to answer your question. – TFM Aug 6 '11 at 7:11

Anything that needs to be done on the client will become a client-side rule, eg are you displaying a desktop alert as part of the rule?

No, I am not display anything. Just want the message to go to a certain folder. – AngryHacker Jan 26 '10 at 1:33
