CodeTwo Exchange Rules processes messages based on the defined conditions. However, you can also define exceptions from Conditions that once met will exclude messages from being processed.

The exceptions from conditions for a given rule are provided by the user in the Exceptions tab separately for each rule (Fig. 1.).

The Exceptions tab with all available conditions.

Please note that you may use as many exceptions as you want within one rule.

The exceptions from conditions can be configured for all available Conditions

Additionally the exceptions are defined, in the same way, as conditions using four identical factors:

  • And/or - enables definition of a logical relationship between exceptions.
  • Field - here you can choose the type of exception.
  • Operator - this field depends on the chosen exception type and enables the definition of how it will be executed. The execution method may be only set to true.
  • Value - this field depends on the chosen exception type. Here you may define the actual, expected value of the particular exceptions that will trigger the rule to exclude the action.

The logic of using And / or relationship between conditions within the exceptions from conditions is the same as in the case of conditions yet works identically. Furthermore, the conditions can also be grouped using the grouping brackets.


Once the exceptions are added, you may remove them via the X button at any point.
