    message rules (6.0)

    Where are OE message rules stored? I'd like to transfer them to another machine...

    Interesting ... I did find the rule names and some parameters at the location you suggested. But I don't see the text strings that comprise the rules. Nor does there appear to be enough data in those registry keys to contain hashed versions of the text keys. Is the body of the rules stored elsewhere?

    Hi, Scott ~

    They are stored entirely in the registry there except for 'Blocked Senders' which has its own key.

    Now that I look more closely I do see the ASCII values of my keywords, delimited by nulls -- I skipped over it the first time.

    Thanks for your assistance.
