There was an error reading the rules from the server.

I received the following error when opening Outlook 
2000: 'There was an error reading the rules from the 
server. The format of the server rules was not 
recognized'. I have checked there are no rules set in the 
rules wizard. The server is running Exchange 2000. I tried 
outlook.exe /cleanrules but no good. I have searched on 
the Microsoft site and on here, but can't find any 
reference to this error. Has anyone ever come across it 
before? How should I take out any server-side rules from 
Exchange server itself? I haven't done it before.

I keep getting and error on start of Office x.v

How do i stop an email being marked as read when i click 'Print'?
Hi There, Whenever i click on an new email (not double click) and click the print icon, it prints a copy of the email but it also marks that email as read, which is what i dont want. I know about the Reading Pane options but the option there is not option for this there. Is there a way for emails not to be marked as read once you print them? Kind regards Liz No, that is not possible with the built-in printing function of Outlook. A printing add-in might show different behavior though. You might want to try their trial first. See;

Rule for meeting appointments / invitations?
Here's a new one on me. I'm in yet another contract, this time it's my first at a managerial level. So, moving on up. The new twist here is that I'm receiving all the meeting invitations sent to my boss, a DG. And they're turning out to be quite a few. Since they're just coming to me and I don't need to action them, wanted to set up a rule so that they'd be diverted into a specific folder. Also, would like my own meeting requests to have a rule of their own to go into yet another folder. But, couldn't figure out how to do this via the usual rule ...

Missing Information after server migration to Exch 2003
I'm consulting at a company and they asked me to look at two problems they're having. However I do not know much about Exchange. This all happened before I worked there. As it was explained to me, they had Exchange 2000 running on a server. They got a new server with Exchange 2003. Everything was moved over to the new server. The old server was 'shut down'. Actually, the server is still up (a DC) but Exchange was un-installed. Problem 1: They had delegates set up for their calendars. They're all gone. Nobody can access anybody else information. Is there a way other ...

Rule not working
Background: I have a user with two email addresses. His primary address is "" and he has a second address called "". We are running SBS2003 with Exchange and the user is using Office 11. Goal: He wants all mail that is sent to the address to be forwarded to another user in the same domain. Problem: Sounds easy enough, right? When the Exchange server receives a piece of mail to, it renames the recipient to thus causing our rule not run. Obviously we can't forward all mail to the o...

Server-side solution for disabling Outlook stationery
We're running an Exchange 2000 mail server, with users accessing their mailboxes via Outlook 2000 or 2002. We'd like to find a way to either disable e-mail stationery use from the server, or prevent outgoing mail from containing stationery, again from the server. Have tried a few ideas so far, with no success. Telling users to stop using stationery is an option we'd like to avoid (we're rather non-confrontational). We prefer to stop it from the back end. Any ideas? Jim Minardo Field Technician IC-2000 ...

Disabling Unicode Messaging
Apparently Exchange 2003 uses Unicode Messaging which previous versions of Exch did not. Now that we have migrated all of our users from Exch 2000 to 2003 their OST files will not work. We have no need for Unicode messaging so rather than rebuilding all of our User's Outlook Profile we would rather simply "disable" Unicode Messaging on the Exch Server. Does anyone have any idea how to do that? Can it be done once the server is in use and has 150+ mailboxes on it Thanks for any input Michael ...

VBA type mismatch error
Hello all, The following line is in an Excel function: j = Application.Find(v, Cells(cnt, 1).Value) When watched, v has a value of "s" with type variant/string. cells(cnt,1).value has a value of 2 with a type of variant/double.
