Client and server rules



I am using Outlook 2007 and I have created three accounts - 2 POP accounts
and 1 Exchange account. All my email including the Exchange email gets
delivered to my PST folder.

On my POP accounts, I have set up some rules to automatically move certain
types of emails to certain folders. These rules became set on the Exchange
server as soon as I set up the Exchange account.

Now, if I want to create a rule on the Exchange server account (tried it
through Outlook Web Access) to automatically forward all mails to a new
address (for automatic archival), I get into a situation that I cannot have
client and server rules and I can only save my new rule if I delete all
existing rules.

How can I make it so that I can forward all Exchange account emails to a
particular address, and still keep my client-based rules?

You may be putting the cart before the horse. Unless your Exchange Server
administrator specifically allows it, automaitc replies, forwards, and Out
of Office messages to the Internet are disabled by default in an Exchange
Server; your rule wil not work unless the Exchange Server is modified to
allow it.
Automatic replies, automatic forwards and Out of Office to Internet
recipients are disabled in Exchange 2000 Server and in Exchange Server 2003

Thanks for bringing the setting to my attention. And I understand that if
the Exchange administrator has not specifically enabled, automatic forwards
will not work to internet addresses.

Even then, how do I resolve my situation, where I would like to forward
mails on the Exchange account to an internet address, but keep my "client"
rules intact?
