Can OLK 2010 'Search Folders' be saved/exported/distributed via GPO

I would like to create a couple searches and distribute them.  I find reference to an OSS file, but nothing about how to create/copy/distribute.

I would prefer to pass these out via GPO, but a file that can be imported would work just as well.

Is this possible with Outlook 2010?

I think that doing this with GPO is not possible. The only things I could find in GPO related to search folders were:
Keep Search Folders offline
Keep Search Folders in Exchange online
Do not create default Search Folders when users start Outlook
Maximum Number of Online Search Folders per mailbox

I'm posting two links if you like to take a closer look:

Based on the responses above and information found via web search, saving of search folder config is not possible.

My comment does not deserve an 'A' because I said "I think" ;)

Not sure if this is the right way to close this item, but I'm giving myself an 'A' anyway! =)
