Outlook rules move without exporting first

Is there a way to get Outlook rules and filters directly from a file (or whatever), if the 'export' wasn't done first?

We had a hardware failure of a computer, but I was able to get all files back (desktop, my docs, templates, signatures, etc.) by connecting the HDD externally to another computer. The user tells me he had several rules in Outlook he would rather not need to recreate.

I know you can Import rules, but that was dependent on doing an Export first.

Can I get those rules back any other way?

It is Outlook 2003, so I think I am out of luck.

Thanks for the input, though.
