    In Outlook 2000, I can use the Rules Wizard to setup an alert to be
    displayed, a sound to be played, etc. for messages when the arrive depending
    on some criteria. I would like to know how to setup this type of rule on my
    Exchange 2003 server once and have it "propagate" to all the clients. It
    would be optimal to not allow my users to change these rules on their
    Outlook 2000 clients. Is this possible?

    Thanks!

  2. Hi,

    Welcome to SBS newsgroup.

    Issue description:
    =============

    I understand that you want to know if the Exchange server can be configured
    to set some rules or reminder on a domain level.

    Analyzing and suggestion:
    =============

    Generally speaking, it is not possible to set such rule on the Exchange
    server side, as I know the rule should be the client side issue, as the
    Exchange 2003 is server side product, but the email alert is a user side
    issue, so we can not set any alert for all domain user, we want to know the
    detailed purpose of your issue, so that we may help you find some
    workaround.

    On Exchange side, we can only set the filtering rule for spam email, the
    exchange will only routing the normal email through SMTP virtual server, it
    will not possible to set rule for incoming email.

    Nothing native will do this for you; you'd need third party software. See
    www.symprex.com for one option.
