The Rule Editor dialog has the following components:
Condition Either edit a condition from the list or use the buttons below the condition list to add new conditions. When the scheduled time occurs, the condition is applied to each message. If the message satisfies the condition, then the message is transmitted.
Message Variables Choose one of the predefined message variables from the list. The message variable is inserted in the conditions list. See Variables defined by the rule engine.
Constants Choose one of the predefined constants from the list. The constant is inserted in the conditions list.
Schedule type Choose one of the following options to specify the schedule policy used to determine when message transmission should occur. By default, Automatic is selected.
Automatic The automatic policy attempts to keep the client and server message stores as up-to-date as possible. See Automatic policy.
Custom A custom policy allows you to define when message transmission occurs and which messages to send in the message transmission. The custom policy is defined by a set of rules stored in a file. Click Edit and then specify when message transmission is to occur, then click OK. See Custom policy.
