If you have Outlook installed at home or on a laptop and want to access it from an off-campus network you will have to install a VPN client in order to set up your Exchange email via Outlook. Then your Outlook would download the setting for it to be used without a VPN.

Alternatively, you can use the Outlook Web App from any location (without VPN).

A rule is an action that Microsoft Outlook performs automatically upon incoming or outgoing messages, based on conditions that you have specified. You can create a rule from a template, from a message, or using your own conditions. You can choose many conditions and actions by using the Rules Wizard. Rules fall into one of two categories — organization and notification. Rules don’t operate on messages that have been read, only on those that are unread.
