transferring signatures and rules


E

Excel

I've transferred my oultook.pst from one PC to another. I got my
email messages and calendar entries, but I've lost my rules and
signatures. How may I get them? (I need to send the first machine
in
for hard-drive replacement, but I'd like to get the rules, signatures
and anything else that I'd set up on Outlook transferred over to my
new machine first. Apparently copying the PST file does not
suffice.)

FYI, I didn't store my PST file in Documents and SEttings\etc on the
new nor old PC, but in c:\MyOwnPathForOutlookPSTFiles\

Copy the entire profile folder...

C:\Documents and Settings\USER_NAME\Application Data

to the destination profile.

Open C:\Documents & Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Microsoft\Signatures
Copy all files to new machine in same location.
Open Outlook and select your signature from the drop down list in Tools >
Options > Mail > Format.

Unfortunately this can't work, because the PST file is no longer on
the source machine. And without a PST file, Outlook won't even open.
Any other ideas?
