Where does Outlook store the e-mail - rules?
Posted on 2001-07-03
I have a lot of complicated e-mail rules in Outlook. Every time I setup my PC new, I have to type in them new again, because I do not knew where Outlook stores them.
It is NOT in the programs/outlook - folder. I tried this already.
If I know the place, I will just copy them.
I also can not find any *.rwz-files. I am using Win98SE German. Guess there are other file-extensions ?!?
In the application-identities-folder I can find only some dbx-files, but these are files for the stored mails.
Now I found the place in the registry where it seems that Outlook 5 stores the rules, but this is stupid! Is not there a easier way for transporting the rules than to crep into the registry?
And I still do not know how to export this particular part from my old reg to the new one. The export should only include the rules folder and not the whole tree starting with the 'HKEY_...'.
OK. I was asked if I was happy with the answers. I dunno how to write comments for myself, so I write it here.
I had still no time to try mancio's hint (but I did not want to reject it!). The others have been useful to find the rules in my registry, but no one was a working soulution until now. It seems that my system behavies a little different (or am I so stupid?)
Anyway, thanx for being so kind. Give me some further days to try, then I will give the points. Promised!
