Has anybody found an easy way to manage server-side rules from Mac OS X?
Here's a brief list of what I know doesn't work:
- Entourage 2008 - it supports client rules, but not server rules. No good, there are certain actions that should happen before I open my laptop or check my email on my iPhone.
- Apple Mail - same as Entourage, but at least I don't get as frustrated since, unlike Entourage, this isn't a Microsoft product.
- Web mail (aka Outlook Web Access) - perhaps you can manage rule in the fancy version which Exchange serves to IE, but not with the browsers available on a Mac.
I manage this now by launching a VMWare virtual machine running Windows XP and Outlook. I don't count that as an easy way.
Update, post release of Office 2011
Does MS Outlook 2011 have the ability to manage server-side rules?
Update, post installation of Office 2011
No. Outlook 2011 doesn't have this ability.
I've already removed my account from Outlook and switched back to Apple Mail and iCal
