Message typeBefore 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 checks the type of message to be processed.

By default one exception is already checked: New mail message. It means that if there is a new mail message no rule will be applied and no action (defined on the Actions tab) will be performed on this message (Fig.2.).
|Fig.2. The default exception is set to New mail message.|
You can choose from the following types of messages:
Non delivery report – if the message is a report with a non delivery message then the condition is met and the rule will not be processed. For example, it can be useful to exclude this type of messages so that it will not have signature added or it will not be forwarded to users.
Meeting request – if the message has a meeting request then the condition is met and the rule will not be processed.
Encrypted message – if the message is encrypted then the condition is met and the rule will not be processed.
Reply/forward message – if the message is a reply) or/and forward message then the condition is met and the rule will not be processed.
On the list you can choose several types of messages (Fig.3.), or all types of messages at once (Fig.4.). At all times the rule will not be applied to the message if the message belongs to at least one type from the list.
