Why only a client-only rule?

Hi,

I'm trying to setup a rule in Outlook to delete any email that arrives that
isn't from a specific address (this isn't an anti-spam measure). When I try
to setup the rule it will only allow a client-only rule. I want this to be a
server side rule as this will be an unattanded mailbox. Why won't it let me
do it?

Apply this rule after the message arrives
perminantly delete it
except if from (e-mail address removed)
stop processing more rules

Thanks.

My guess is that you populated the "except if from..." field with a
client needed source. Does this sound possible? If so, re-create the
rule and simply type the SMTP into the field.

Hi,

I can't see why it would need the client, its just an SMTP address. I've
even tried changing the rule to "except with (e-mail address removed) in
the sender's address", but to no avail.

I'm a bit stumped?

Thanks.

I am afraid I am a bit stumped too. Are you sure this is all there is to
the rule?

I have included the link above to an excellent write-up on what to
look for that may be going astray with your rule.
