Outlook 2007 Recover email rules from old pst
Posted on 2008-10-03
Working with XP Pro, Outlook 2007 - NO EXCHANGE SERVER
Having problems with Outlook so we went to control panel | mail and deleted the existing profile and created a new one.
We then opened outlook, creating a new set of personal folders. We then attached an old pst, and copy and pasted mail, calendar, tasks, contacts over. So far, so good.
User has a zillion rules, but I did not export before this process started.
Is there a way to recover/import the rules from one of our various backups of the pst? I know about the export import function for rules now... but did not know that at the time.
I tried attaching one of the old pst files... making it the default, closing and opening outlook... but the rules do not show up. I may be missing something here.
