Reinstalling Outlook 2007


J

jmparsons3

I reinstalling Office 2007 on my Windows 7 partition. My .PST file
lives on a separate physical rive on this machine, so I'll point
Outlook to that file once the installation is complete.

I want to transfer all my Rules and Signatures to the new
installation. Where do I find them, and where should they go in Win 7?

Signatures reside in the Signatures folder of your user profile. To quickly
access that folder use;
Tools-> Options...-> tab Mail Format-> hold CTRL when clicking on the
Signatures... button

Rules reside in the pst-file itself. When you create your mail profile,
reconnect your pst-file and directly assign it as the default delivery
location via Control Panel-> Mail before starting Outlook, then the rules
will be maintained.

Better would be to export your rules first via;
Tools-> Rules and Alerts-> button Options

You can import the rules afterwards then. However, with either method you'll
probably have to reassign the folders for any "Move To" rule.
