    Removing Rules from Exchange Mailbox

    Does anybody know an easy way of removing rules setup through outlook remotely on the Exchange server?

    We have students thinking its great to setup rules which when somebody emails them it replies with 400 emails!

    I'm also getting his teacher to have a go!

    Disable their account. They're misusing it so you should take it away.

    -------------

    Removing user added rules from exchange server.

    Click the Windows Start button and select "Control Panel." Double-click the "Administrative Tools" icon. Double-click the icon labeled "Active Directory Users and Computers."

    Click the Exchange server name in the left side of the window pane. Click the "Users" icon to list all users configured on the machine.

    Right-click the user you want to edit and select "Properties." In the window that opens, click the "Manage Mailbox Settings." This displays a list of rules with check boxes.

    Clear the check marks next to each mailbox rule you want to remove. Once you've cleared all the rules, click the "OK" button to save the settings. The user's mailbox rules are removed and implemented the next time the user logs into the email client.

    Isn't there a way to manage users?

    It should be there somewhere.


    I'm stuck with 2k3 so I can't really help if it's different.

    Server Configuration, Client Access, Right click on OWA directory, Properties, Segmentation tab


    Also, username = Glennda but signing off as Toby?

    @Glennda - This request is a little tricky, as my understanding is that rules are actually stored in the edb in the mailbox therefore you cannot just go into the edb directly and delete the rules. You may be able to prevent the users from creating further rules by using the Office .adm for Outlook 2003. This still means you will have to delete the current rules.

    Do you want to prevent and delete I assume?

    I just want to delete the rules - i'm going to be blocking his account from now on but i wasnt sure if there was a way of doing it easily.

    We can't stop them making them as they need to be able to use it for part of the course they are doing!
