Default additional mailbox rules

I have my personal mailbox and an additional shared mailbox in my outlook 2003.
i need to set rules on the additonal mailbox for all users to redflag emails containing certain words and to move emails containing certain words from the inbox to a separate folder.

I have set up the rules and they work on my personal mailbox but they wont work on the additional one
I do not want to have rules on my personal mailbox, just the additional one

How can i do this?

Thanks in advance

Default additional mailbox rules

You will need to log into the other mailbox with its own profile to
set the rules. However, I think you will run into a few issues that
may not suit you.

The main issue will be that you need to build rules that are Server
side only. (No client rules). See the info on the following link for
greater detail: http://www.slipstick.com/rules/serverbased.htm

Your rules are for your mailbox. Automation runs only on the
"System" or "Default" folders. (Personal Mailbox folders: Inbox,
Calendar, Sent, etc.)

Default

I'm really having difficulties setting rules on the additional mailbox.

I thought it would be fairly straightforward to red flag e-mails containing specific key words and moving emails with specific key words to a folder.

I logged into the additional mailbox using Outlook Web Access, however the rules wizard does not allow you to red flag emails and when i tried to set a rule to move emails to a folder it doesnt work on OWA or in Outlook.

Anyone have any problems with these issues before and is there a way around it?

Thanks

Default additional mailbox rules

You will not be able to use OWA for this.
You need to open the mailbox in it's own profile and set up the rules
there. But let me reiterate, they have to be SERVER SIDE ONLY
rules or they will not work unless you are logged into the profile.

Maybe a rethink on how you are implementing the use of this other
mailbox may be in order.

Why is a separate mailbox being used? (Name, Multiple persons, etc)
Is this something that could be accomplished using a Public Folder?

Perhaps if you explained the whole purpose and what the goal is,
we could help offer a cleaner solution.
