Ok so redemption didn't solve my earlier problem for scaling with the 32K

message rule.

If i create an outlook plugin that read the incoming messages and filtered

them manually though it would. The only problem is and although not necessary

i would like to do it in a way that would always be working behind the

scenes. By this i mean if someone checked on their exchange box via webmail

the add in would still be filtering mail at the server level.

What options would i have to do this? Is this something i would have to

create for exchange to act on a specific mailbox level or?

Essentially i want to scan each incoming mail message's body field, find a

specific line and if that line is found dissect it and move the message to a

folder based on whats in this line. Simple enough just need the options i

have to make it always run regardless of if the user is using webmail, mail

from their mobile device or outlook 2007 to read mail.

Thanks in advance.

In a way, you already answered your own question: "the add in would still be

filtering mail at the server level" means that unless Outlook is running

24/7 on the user's desktop, any filtering application that goes beyond

Outlook's capability for creating server-side rules would need to be

implemented at the server level, i.e. as an Exchange application, not an

Outlook add-in. That's a completely different type of application, with

dependencies on the specific version of Exchange involved. Exchange

documentation starts at http://msdn.microsoft.com/exchange/ with discussions

in the microsoft.public.exchange.development newsgroup or in the web forum

at http://forums.microsoft.com/TechNet/ShowForum.aspx?ForumID=838&SiteID=17

Thanks. I had an idea of what i had to do but was just throwing it out there

hoping that perhaps i missed something or that there was an alternate option

for achieving my goals :).

Was trying the think tank approach.

Thanks again.
