Server side rules are client independent. You set them up and they run
(requiring no client, pst or ost to fire).
Basically if the rule doesn't reference something on the client
machine, or a folder outside the default mailbox (e.g. public folders)
it's a server side rule. So, a rule to delete all messages from
mailbox with a client again.
