    Hi. We are just about to migrate from SBS 2003 Std to SBS 2011 Std.
    Our 2003 server has Mapilabs Rules for Exchange installed, but I've
    just looked up their website and I see that it does not support
    Exchange 2007 or 2010: 2003 is the latest. I'm assuming this is
    because the later version of Exchange have the funcitonality built-in,
    so I'm hoping you can tell me if that is so and how to use it.

    We use Mapilabs for this purpose: whenever any email is sent/received
    between us and one of our clients, a copy is put in a MailArchive
    mailbox, in a designated folder. For example, if we have clients Foo,
    Bar & Baz, then the MailArchive folder looks like:


    If a mail comes in from to then
    jimbob will get it as normal, but a copy will be put into MailArchive
    \Inbox\Foo, and when jimbob replies that mail too will go in to the
    same folder. The rules we have set up monitor the from/to address,
    then the subject, then the message body.
    Originally we used Outlooks built-in Rules feature (with exchange set
    to duplicate any messages into the MailArchive user, and the rules set
    in that user account), but the number of rules involved was more than
    Outlook could handle, and were also incredibly unweildy. Mapilabs
    could handle any number of rules, and could import/export to xml: we
    have a script to generate this xml from a simple, user-editable
    rules.txt file.

    So: does exchange 2010 support something like this feature? If not,
    does anyone have a recommendation for similar software that does work
    with 2010?

    You may have noticed that it's gone a bit quiet around here. Usenet has
    been abandoned, and everyone's gone over to:

    and you'll need a Hotmail/Live email address to post to it.
