Import/export Unicode in Outlook 2003 Pro


J

Jerry

I'm using outlook 2003 professional and when I was trying to find out how to
import/export my rules list and clicked on help, this is what I got:

There is no automatic way of converting a Microsoft Outlook 97-2002 Personal
Folders file (.pst) to a Unicode-capable Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders
file (.pst) file. The easiest way to convert a non-Unicode .pst file is to
create a new data file in the Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders file (.pst)
format that supports Unicode and then import items from the old data file to
the new Microsoft Outlook Personal Folders file (.pst).

OK, great but I'm using 2003 and there are no instructions indicated in Help
for it, yet I'm running 2003. What gives?

Thanks
Jerry

That has nothing to do with importing/exporting rules.

Use: Tools-> Rules and Alerts...-> button Options

Thank you. After going to Buttons as you suggested I'm asked where I want to
save the rwz file. Can you please help with some brief instructions on how I
do this?
Thank you

You save it to your backup location ;-)
If you ever need to restore your rules, you can import them again from that
location as well.

Well, I found all of my other .pst and.ost in:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application
Data\Microsoft\Outlook
and saved the list there. I'm assuming that is my backup folder.
Thanks for your help

There is no "backup folder". You can put your RWZ file in any folder you
wish. In fact, the folder you chose is probably less than ideal. Were I you,
I'd createa folder called, say "Outlook Backups" under "My Documents" and put
it there.

By the way, you should NOT be using the Administrator username for your
regular Windows operations.
