    Stored in the registry, not easily/safely portable.

    > My messages rules
    Look for a file ending in .RWZ (I think under Application DataMicrosoftOutlook). The first part should match the name of your profile if you have profiles set up; otherwise I don't know.

    Hi !

    Thanks for you response.

    > Stored in the registry, not easily/safely portable.

    Grr... What a weird design decision... Anyway, do you have an idea if I can access them using VBA ? I have quickly looked at the object model but failed to locate anything relevant !

    if you are using IMO mode, isn't there a way to export the accounts as IAF files? I don't use IMO, but i thought someone said it was possible.

    otherwise, registry entries are readable/writable using code.. so yes. But unless you're doing this on a lot of systems, it's easier to export the keys manually.

    FWIW, i've found it's worth recreating the accounts. It only takes a few minutes per account and avoids potentially corrupt data from the registry.

    (if you are doing a lot of systems, why aren't you using roaming profiles... )

    Depending on your MS-paranoia-coefficient: they have a "save your office settings wizard" I use as an occasional safety. Hit their site; theoretically it should keep you from worrying about what and where to save
    Don't mistake that as a life raft - just another tool in the box.

    Yes - what I want is to automate the process using VBA !

    Unless you're talking about setting up a whole series of machines, the difficult items are all one-offs. For the rules and the rest, you are probably best off using an old-fashioned batch file. HTH
