After recovering from a corrupt pst file and restoring all the emails, I have noticed that all the folders and rules are gone. Where is that information kept and is there any way to recover those as well? The emails were recovered by restoring from a previous pst file.

Did you create a new mail profile? AFAIK the rules are bound to that profile.
Folders however are part of the PST file, so they should not get lost if you just replaced the PST file.

Rules, and views are bound to the Outlook profile.  If you deleted that and recreated, your rules will be gone.

What "folders" are you talking about?  If it's other mailboxes, those will have to be re-added if the profile was re-created.

I had folders and rules set up, for example: Customer and then John Smith, Sally Ride, etc underneath the Customer folder. They all went away after I recreated the profile along with all the rules to put emails into each folder.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

So, yes, the rules would go away and need to be re-created after the profile was rebuilt.

Also, any .PST files you were pointing to would need to be re-added after the new profile creation.

The .PST files would NOT get deleted on an Outlook profile deletion/recreation.

The accepted answer of ScottCha is basically the same as my comment, which has been posted first. Could you explain why you closed that way?
