Message DirectionBefore CodeTwo Exchange Rules PRO processes any messages and performs any actions, it checks the defined conditions. If the message or messages meet the condition then it is processed. If not, the rule will not be applied and no action will be taken. Apart from the condition it is possible to define exceptions. If the defined exception is met then the rule will not be applied. One of the available exceptions is the Message direction: whether the message is internal, outgoing or incoming.
To set it up, on the Exceptions tab click the Add button, and then Message direction (Fig.1.).
|Fig.1. Choosing Message direction on the Exceptions tab.|
By default, the Outgoing message is enabled on the list of exceptions (Fig.2.). When a message is sent outside the organization then the rule will not be applied and no action (defined on the Actions tab) will be performed.
|Fig.2. The default exception is set to Outgoing message.|
You can also define two types of messages (Fig.3.), three types of messages (Fig.4.) or other desired combination. At all times the rule will not be applied if the message belongs to at least one type from the list.
