How to restore rules on a Exchange 2003 mailbox

We have a mailbox that has a large number of rules setup to handle incoming email. Unfortunately a rules backup wasn't ever performed using Outlook 2003, so we can't restore the rules that way. We do backup the mailbox nightly via BackupExec and have the ability to restore data via a GRT (Granular Restore Technology) restore.. Can we restore the rules via our BackupExec backup or are they stored locally in a Outlook 2003/Exchange 2003 environment?

Rules are local, normally the same directory as the .NK2 (nickname) file - most often outlook.rwz.

It's in a hidden directory in the user profile. From memory, something like application data \ microsoft \ outlook.

Find with windows explorer.


I wrote that late at night on my iPhone, see here:

C:\Documents and Settings\ M Y  P R O F I L E \Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook
