Outbound rules are used to map Policies to Users & Groups and Domains. Rules are processed in order, with the first matching rule, i.e. combination of User or Group and Domain, being the Policy applied to the outbound message. Since they are processed in order, it is possible to devise either complex or extremely simple policies dependent on requirement.
