You can't.  The rules are not interchangeable.  You can back them up from one computer and restore them on another with the same version of OL.

One option is to write down the desired rules and recreate them manually.  This will get as close as possible to filling this request.

I think it is quite obvious that one can recreate the rules manually. It is ridiculous to award any points for that suggestion.

A: You can't.

Pure and simple.  Straightforward.  Why shouldn't that be accepted?

slink9, because anything is possible. It is just a matter of converting one standard into another. Wouldn't be to complicated to do that, but I'll accept the PAQ.

If it were possible you would have gotten the method described.  There are some things that are just not worth putting a lot of effort into.  If there were hundreds of thousands out there who had this problem someone would write a program to do it.  As I found out when writing one of my programs, when there is only one or two users out there it will be quite a financial bust.
