BackUp Message Rules-Outlook Express

Hi,
One way is,
To backup the message rule. You can use the export functions available with Outlook Express, from the FILE MENU after you launch the Outlook Express. Also use the Import function to restore back the message rule.
another way,
copy out the all program and files of the outlook express keep a side. After you installed the new OS but the Outlook express need to be the same version. After that copy back the program and data file to the default location where Outlook Express use the keep.

Hope this will be help.

Regards

Thomas

Dear Maxtec,
Unfortunatly what you say about the file menu - export in outlook express is not valid for the message rules in Outlook Express.

From the export you can export messages to Microsoft exchange or you can export the Address book.

Unfortunalty the Message rules are not located in the outlook express folder or in the messages folder.

If you find a solution please let me know.
Thank you.
