Outlook 2003: Restore rules from backed up registry / files
Posted on 2005-02-24
Earlier in the week, XP decided it might be fun to fail on me and unfortunately I couldn't fix it. I ghosted the hard drive and did a full re-install and now I'm trying to get outlook 2003 running properly again.
I've managed to re-import the mail and the accounts (From the registry) but I can't find where the rules are stored. They should be in the registry somewhere, but even when I add a new rule into my new outlook setup I can't find what changes in the registry. I've seen rwz files mentioned on the web, but I don't have any of those on my system.
Any idea how to get at the rules again? I had so many of them that I really don't think I can replace them by hand. :(
