Synchronizing Outlook 2007 email rules between two computers


I'm running Outlook 2007 on my Desktop computer and have a lot of rules set up for incomming emails. On my laptop, I'm also running Outlook 2007 and would like to be able to synchronize the rules between the both.
Both computers are pulling the emails from my POP3 account, IMAP is not possible with my provider, and then they're filtered by the rules I've setup on my desktop wich works without any problems.
All emails and contacts have been synchronized through copying the outlook.pst file and an email retention of 30 days to make sure both my desktop and laptop get all the emails.
I did a few searches and found some expensive tools to do it, but I'm wondering if there is there any way to easely and preferably cheap way to also synchronize the rules for filtering my emails on Outlook 2007 between two computers? Both computers are running Windows Vista Ultimate x64

Thanks for your efforts,

You can backup the rules from one machine and restore them to another - see http://www.slipstick.com/rules/backup.htm

Now you've just made me feel quite stupid...
I completely missed that option as I've just been playing with the Import and Export options of the general Outlook options.
Thanks, a well deserved "A"-grade.
