Has anybody found an easy way to manage server-side rules from Mac OS X?
Here's a brief list of what I know doesn't work:
I manage this now by launching a VMWare virtual machine running Windows XP and Outlook. I don't count that as an easy way.
Update, post release of Office 2011
Does MS Outlook 2011 have the ability to manage server-side rules?

To the best of my knowledge, changing server-side rules from pure OSX is not possible. When our Mac users request this at work, we help them through setting up the rules in a full Outlook client. Microsoft hasn't exposed these APIs to non-MAPI clients, and as you've already discovered the non-IE OWA doesn't have this support either.
The IE OWA version can do rules (at least in Exchange 2007 and higher), but even that functionality is somewhat reduced. But Server-side rules (folder sorting and the like) are able to be created.
