Modify a Transport Rule

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

You can modify existing transport rules when you want to make changes to messaging policy.

CautionCaution:
Before you modify transport rules in your production environment, we recommend that you use a test environment to understand how transport rules work, and test all rules before creating them in a production environment.
importantImportant:
For transport rules to be applied to e-mail messages, a route must exist that enables the message to enter and leave a server that applies transport rules. Also, the message must not be subject to an administrator-configured transport restriction that prevents delivery of the message. If a transport restriction prevents delivery of a message, the Transport Rules agent can't act on that message, and no Transport Rules agent events are logged.
