OE 5 Message Rules

I just recently installed Windows 98 Special Edition (SE) with IE/OE5. I am now running the same version of Windows 98 SE from multiple C: partitions which I set up using Partition Magic 4.0. I have been successful with placing my mail and news folders, and also the windows address book on my D: partition so they now can be shared by both OS partitions just fine.  What I would like to do now is to share my OE5 message rules between the OS's from the D: partition. I thought that the rules would have been part of the mail and news folders, but it appears that the message rules must be placed somewhere else because when I add or change a message rule in one OS partition, it is not then reflected in the other OS partition.  Do you know if I can store the rules on a partition other than C: and share them between multiple Windows 98 OS partitions?

Unfortunately the rules are maintained as dynamic registry entries and therefore are exclusive to the OS you were operating when they were set. Your mail, news and address book items are data files and can be placed just about anywhere, but the rules, like other items such as unique changes to how Outlook operates, involves registry entries.

Thanks Dennis. Not exactly what I was hoping for, but pretty much what I expected.

Well as I understand it, Office 2000 with Outlook 2000, these settings will be able to run from a server environment, but I haven't had time to really dig into it.
