moving rules from one system to another


B

Bruce

I have a lot of different rules, and alot of rules that I have exported
during different times from different systems and supporting different PST
files.

I would like to import them into a new PST file. What is the:
BEST way of doing this?
The EASIEST way of doing this.

Where can I find more info about importing rules? I have found that even if
the folder exists, if the PST is not the same name nad in the same location,
that some time (I have not figured out when, becuase sometimes it seems to
work) it leaves the folder to be dragged to empty.

Are there any 3rd party utils that will look at the RWZ file, and then
create any and all folder that ar being requested?

What if I want to use the SAME rules set in a PST that is shared by
BRIEFCASE? Will the rules export and import OK?
Thanks
Bruce

There's only one way to do this -- reconnect the rules manually to point to
the correct folders.

Sue,

I was afraid you were going to say that....
Just looking at a RWZ file with a text editor, it LOOKS like ther might be a
way to get the info and I was hoping somebody had written a util to do that.
You would know though!

Thanks

I have set up my pst files so I can access them with the same path on both
computers. I used file links (e.g., http://www.rekenwonder.com/linkmagic.htm)
to do this while actually having the files on different partitions on the two
machines.

This seems to work fine and Outlook folders in rules are passed between the
two computers without needing to change the rules. I haven't been able to
mask the difference between email accounts between machines so that rules
driven by account don't transfer right.
