There's a 32KB limit for rules in Exchange; it's hard-coded, and cannot
be changed.  This is server-based rules, by the way, and not
client-based.  You can have more client-based rules.  The limit is due
to the rules needing to fit into a single RPC packet.

Two Outlook 2000 users have been getting the error below when they try
setup new rules. The rules are simple, "Mail from specific account gets
moved to another folder".  I am using Exchange Server 2000 and Outlook
2000.  Each with the most current service packs and patches.  There is
no shortage of disk space (52GB free on the Exchange Server) and plenty
on the 2 workstations in question.  No one else on the network is
getting the error.  In addition, they are unable to delete the rule that
has been deactivated.  Anyone have any thoughts?
"One or more of your rules could not be uploaded to the Exchange server
and have been deactivated.  This could be because some of the parameters
are not supported or there is insufficient space to store your rules"
