Copy/Transfer Microsoft Outlook Message Rules


OSNN Senior Addict
Hi. I am using Microsoft Outlook on my desktop and I am planning to transfer/copy the message rule to my notebook. Where can I find the file and is it possible? Thanks.

How to export and import rules
You can back up your Rules Wizard Rules by exporting them for later use. To export your rules, follow these steps:
1. On the Tools menu, click Rules Wizard.
2. Click Options.
3. Click Export, and then specify the file name for your exported rules. The file uses the .rwz file name extension.
To import previously defined rules, follow these steps: 1. On the Outlook Bar, click Inbox.
2. On the Tools menu, click Rules Wizard.
3. Click Options.
4. Click Import Rules.
5. In the File Name box, type the path and the file name where the existing rules reside. By default, the rules are stored in a file that has an .rwz file name extension.
6. Click Open.

Great. Thanks a lot. I did not know that it was that easy. I never checked the OPTION button. I was thinking that it's a file that is hidden somewhere under the Local Settings... :)
