    Address List from Rule

    I'm using Outlook 2K, IMO, without the dreaded security patch.
    We've added our own in-house eMail server, and can now run some functions directly on the server rather than in Outlook.
    I have a "Delete Junk eMail" rule, that I created myself, that contains over 400 addresses (at last count). When I get a piece of Junk eMail from a new sender, I go into the Rules Wizard & create a rule to move it to the Deleted Items Folder. The Wizard actually doesn't create a new rule, it adds the new address to the existing rule. This works just fine.
    Now, with our eMail server, I want to block these addresses at the eMail server, so Outlook won't see them at all.
    How do I get a list of the addresses in this rule (preferably printed)?

    Re: Address List from Rule

    The only thing I could come up with may or may not work for you. At the very least, you could print them out, but it won't be pretty.

    Go into the Rules Wizard, click on Options (at the bottom), and export the rules. It'll pop it into a .rwz file, but you can open that in Notepad, Excel, or Word. Naturally, there will be a bunch of crazy characters in the document.

    One would think that there would be a better way, but I wouldn't bet the farm.

    I hope this helps (at least a little) <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>

    Yes, it helps, more than a little.
    The output is MUCH EASIER to look at if I open it in Word (2k).

    I have another question:
    Where are these names / addresses held?
    I would think it's something much like the Address Book . . .
    Any thoughts?
