    Hello there,

    My situation is a little different, but I had to reinstall my Office 2007. I am running Vista with Office 2007, so all of the old data went to Windows.old folder. My archive.pst and outlook.pst files were still available in that folder location. I imported everything else without a hitch (Inbox w/ subfolders, RSS feeds, Sent Items, Calendar, Tasks, etc). The only thing I can't import are my rules. I have nine or ten of them and if I can I would rather not remake them, although I will if I have to. Figured I'd ask first, no sense in reinventing the wheel if I don't have to. :)

    From what I understand, rules are not included in any of your .PST files. You would have had to manually export them from the old installation before importing into the new. Once exported the rules settings should be stored in a file with the extension .rwz

    Not sure if this thread will help but you may want to check it out.
