Batch File/VB Script to Automatically Save Outlook Rules?

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2012-05-06
Does anyone have a bat file or VB script to automatically save rules within Outlook 2007 to a specified location?

I have a client that has hundreds of rules per PC that I would like to automate the process of exporting the rules to a network location or a local location.

Hi, NoobNKC.

Although Microsoft exposed rules to developers in Outlook 2007 they did not expose the ability export or import them via code.  That capability is only available through the GUI.
