Current situation:

Our finance department uses a public folder which has mail enabled so they receive digital invoices on accounting@mycompany.net.

Every user has its own subfolder in which they drag their invoices so our automatic ocr-flow can process the invoices.

Some users are creating individual rules so the mails are automatically moved to specific folders.


  • Is it possible to either manage the rules for the public folder via the exchange admin panel, or via powershell?

  • If not, is their a way to export/import the rules from one key user to other users?

Thank you


Yes, you can manage Inbox rules using PowerShell. Key cmdlets: Get-InboxRule, New-InboxRule. And you can create a PS script for deploying required rules for other users.

  • Thank you thims for your reply. Does this also work with public folders? – Kickar Jul 10 '18 at 6:39
  • You can't have Public Folder rules even in Outlook. Or, if you mean specifying public folder as a target then, yes. – thims Jul 10 '18 at 11:30
