When you create a rule, you must do the following:
Name the rule.
Select an event. The event is the trigger that starts the rule.
Select the types of items that will be affected by the rule.
Add an action. The action is what you want the rule to do when it is triggered.
Save the rule.
Make sure that the rule is enabled.
Rules are stored in your GroupWise Mailbox at your post office. Because of this, rules you define in other versions of the GroupWise client also appear in the Rules list and apply when you use GroupWise WebAccess.
You can edit any rules you create in GroupWise WebAccess. If you create rules using another version of the GroupWise client, you can edit those rules if they do not contain more capabilities than GroupWise WebAccess allows you to set. For example, the Windows version of the GroupWise client lets you create rules to apply to items you are sending. Because the Rules feature in GroupWise WebAccess does not include this capability, you cannot edit that rule.
