Enable or Disable a Transport Rule

Exchange 2010
 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

The Transport Rule agent must be enabled before you can apply transport rules to e-mail messages that enter and leave a Hub Transport server. The Edge Rule agent must be enabled before you can apply transport rules to messages that enter and leave the Edge Transport server. You can run the Get-TransportAgent cmdlet on both the Hub Transport server and Edge Transport server to determine whether the Transport Rule agent or Edge Rule agent is running on the respective server role.

To temporarily stop the Rules agent on a Hub Transport server or the Edge Transport server from executing a transport rule, you can disable the rule.

When you enable or disable transport rules on a Hub Transport server, the modified transport rule is replicated across the Exchange 2007 organization to all the Hub Transport servers. When you enable or disable transport rules on an Edge Transport server, the modified transport rule is modified only on the local Edge Transport server.
