    Outlook Secrets (MSO2K SR1a)

    I read the WOPR forums religiously, and I gotta tell all users of Outlook: the one utility you should NEVER be without comes from (gasp!) Microsoft themselves, "Save My Settings". Downloaded directly from their site (http://office.microsoft.com/download.../o2ksmsdd.aspx), it's fabulous.

    Using it, you save to MS's servers all your settings, colors, rules etc. for Outlook, so that if you ever should have the need to restore or re-install (God knows I have) you can EASILY recover all the time-consuming modifications you have made.

    Regards,

    Re: Outlook Secrets (MSO2K SR1a)

    The profile wizard in the Office Resource Kit also is useful for preserving settings. I used it for a year to set up new PCs from one saved configuration file. (Unlike a ghosting utility, this only affects settings, not application serial numbers.)

    It works differently than the online tool; everything is saved locally. I think it might not be practical for heavy mail users because I believe it subsumes your entire PST files. But I could be wrong about that.
