Rule Conditions and Outlook rules wizard RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm trying to implement and test the various conditions that can be associated with a rule (i.e. the PidTagRuleCondition variations).

    As shown in MS-OXCDATA, Section 2.13, there are twelve types of restriction. So far, I've managed to get Outlook 2007 to generate rules using
            RES_AND            = 0x0,
            RES_OR            = 0x1,
            RES_NOT            = 0x2,
            RES_CONTENT        = 0x3,
            RES_PROPERTY        = 0x4,
            RES_BITMASK        = 0x6,
            RES_EXIST        = 0x8,
            RES_COMMENT        = 0xA,

    However I haven't managed to generate a rule using any of the following restriction types.
            RES_COMPAREPROPS    = 0x5,
            RES_SIZE        = 0x7,
            RES_SUBRESTRICTION    = 0x9,
            RES_COUNT        = 0xB

    Does outlook rules wizard allow generation of those restriction types? If so, can I have a hint on how?

    If not, is there some other way to generate these rules within Outlook or Exchange?

    These details are considered client implementation details and are out-of-scope of the documentation.

  • As a potentially related issue, I also haven't found a way to generate rules containing some of the ActionTypes (MS-OXORULE 2.2.5.1.1).

    I can generate rules with:
     - OP_MOVE (0x01)
     - OP_COPY (0x02)
     - OP_REPLY (0x03)
     - OP_DEFER_ACTION (0x05)
     - OP_FORWARD (0x07)

    I can't seem to generate rules that use
    - OP_OOF_REPLY (0x04)
    - OP_BOUNCE (0x06)
    - OP_DELEGATE (0x08)
    - OP_TAG (0x09)
    - OP_DELETE (0x0A)
    - OP_MARK_AS_READ (0x0B)

    Suggestions for how to generate those would also be appreciated.

  • Sorry - that should have read '[MS-OCXDATA]' - and thanks for your input to those other posts.

  • Hi Dominic

    I've managed to generate rules that use RES_SUBRESTRICTION and OP_TAG. I'm continuing to work on the others.

  • This is a disappointing response. I think the part of the question about whether outlook can produce particular conditions and actions is a reasonable interoperability question.

    I accept that it isn't going to get answered though.
