In Microsoft Outlook 2007, you can go to the TOOLS>ORGANZIE menu and color code emails based on certain criteria ("rules").

Note: this is DIFFERNT than color coding on the calendar, or using the color "categories" .



I want the file/registry key that saves these rules for EMAIL message color coding, so that it can be backed up.

Hi, hrvasupport.

They aren't written to the registry.  They are stored in the views collection which is kept in a hidden folder in the mailbox.

There is no simple means of doing this.  It's typically easier to just recreate them.  If you do want to back them up, then here's how.
