Can I move my Outlook Rules to a New Outlook PST file?

My MS Outlook 2000 pst file was approaching the 2GB limit, so I created a new mailbox.

I have found the the rules that I created to move messages no longer work, even though I've duplicated the directory structure.

For example, if I receive a message with from my company domain a rule that I created should move that message to my WORK folder.  

Is there any solution other than recreating about 30 rules?

Well - if you still have the old profile - you could export the rules and then import them in the new profile, but other than that - I think manual is the only way.

You might be able to locate your old profile .RWZ file and copy it to your new profile (may have to rename the existing one and then rename the old one to the same name as the current one (with Outlook closed)).

I still have the old PST file opening up in my Outlook Folder list, but I can't seem to figure out how to export.  I'm using Outlook 2000.

When outlook opens i currently have both pat files opening up.  This allows me to copy from folders of one pet to the other.

When I select file import I'm given a choice of files to choose from... But rules is not listed.

Do I still have to import?  The rules should already be loaded,
.

Thanks

This artical applies to a different version of Outlook but I did find the Import and Export buttons for Outlook 2000.
They can be accessed from the same form as the form used to create new rules using the Options button at the bottom of the form.

With this said, I think this would work, but now I can't find the rules that I want to export.

This may be due to me changing the delivery setup, but I'm not sure.  

When I open Outlook the New and the Old pst file opens up, and appears in the folder pane.  When I click on the New pst name, and then go to the option that lets me change and add rules, my original rules are gone.

Perhaps this needs to be done before changes are made to set up a new pst file?

Hmm.. not sure where to go from here.
