I just reinstalled my Windows (XP Home SP 2) but I do keep a backup of my Outlook Express's data as well as the accounts (import/export accounts) so nothing is lost with inbox, outbox, own created folders etc and I can simply import accounts which is being exported previously.

But I do lost the Message Rules and can't find the option on Outlook Express about how to backup or export/import it.

Someone know?

Greetings rulirahmadi,

Mail Rules are stored in registry.  If you did not backup the registry key before reinstalling Windows, then you will have to recreate the rules manually.

1.      Click Start, and then click Run.
2.      In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
3.      Locate and click the following registry subkeys (save each key to a different file):
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Identities\{Identity Number}\Software\Microsoft\Outlook Express\5.0\Rules\Mail
4.      On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File.
5.      In the Save In box, change the location to your desktop.
6.      In the File Name box, type mail rules.reg (for the mail rules key), and then click Save.
7.      On the Registry menu, click Exit.
