Default Export Account Settings in Outlook 2007

I know this post is old, BUT:

I have just confirmed this works with EXCHANGE accounts!

Export the registry key from HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows
NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\PROFILENAME

Thanks for the help!

1) I am not sure if this "backup method" will work entirely if the account

POP3/IMAP/HTTP/RSS, but I haven't have a chance to try it on a machine
with
Microsoft Exchange. If someone else is able to try it and post the results
it
would be nice;


It won't retain any account passwords. You'll have to redefine them.

2) On the Office 2007 the KEY also carries the RULES, so then you don't
need
to export them. On the previous version of Outlook the rules use to
require
the exporting method;


For Outlook 2007 rules are in a hidden folder in the PST, not in the mail
profile. If you move a PST properly, the rules can move with it. Hoewever,
it's always best to use the Rules Wizard to export the rules and move the
exported RWZ file, importing them again if needed on the target PC.

Default Export Account Settings in Outlook 2007

That only works if all the paths and locations (including username) stay
EXACTLY the same. Even then, it is still quite likely to end up with a
corruption in the mail profile of some sort.

Thank you so much to Jeff Knapp for solving the problem.

Hello,

I'm re-installing Office Enterprise 2007, how can I export my account
setting in Outlook?

I know that exporting the PST file is not enough, and I don't have "Save My
Settings Wizard" under Office Tools (was that only for Office 2003?).

Another question: are the rules also exported when I backup the PST file?

Thanks,
Roee.

Wolf,

Thank You Galen was way out of line. In addition I will add he did not give
any detailed instructions as to how to go about using the api's etc. I only
come to these pages due to the insentive replies to shout outs for help.

I am tired of hearing how well and how good MS is when they can not even
supply an operatins systemt that lasts more then two years and is backwards
compatible. An Operating system should be just that an operating system. I am
so tired of having to buy new software because it will not run my older
software. I should go by a used IBM mainframe that would run my programs from
50 years ago. HA.

When a **** answers a post like that you know they dont care about answering
the question. I thank you for your post to his because even in mine, which is
not as nice as yours, am holding back quite a bit.

So for all of you out there that can not offer a solution with easy
instructions on how, please just dont answer. Go on your merry way of being
better then everyone else.

Galen,

Your reply almost pushed me to say "bad words"!!!!

Doesn't matter how wonderful or powerful the suite is if it lacks of such a
simple and important tool as an "account exporter"... The "Outlook Develop
Team" should be at a shame of themselves for this stupid failure (and
Microsoft, as a company, for not providing a external tool of fixing upgrade
for that).

People who PAY MONEY for their operational tools should not be required to
waste their valuable time studding SDKs and APIs to develop solutions to
cover up the incompetence of a so well paid team (the Outlook Develop Team).

Why don't you shut up and stop bragging about how "wonderful" the "most
popular Office suite on the planet" is and open your mind to realize that,
regardless of its "wonderfulness", IT STILL LACKS OF SOME SIMPLE AND
IMPORTANT RESOURCE!!!

Stop saying to people to "put up or shut up" because they PAID for something
and they have the right to complaint once it doesn't do the job entirely!!!

It's indeed a shame that there isn't such a tool



It's a shame? It's a joke. Why there isn't such a mechanism to perform
this
task seamlessly is outside the scope of human understanding. Hell, I
could
write something in a scripting language that could do this, if provided a
decent API. Testament to much of the disdain that exists towards Outlook.


The Outlook APIs and SDK are among the best on the planet. Put up or shut
up. We're not talking some obscure OS or small time operation here. We're
talking about the most popular Office suite on the planet. Put up or shut
up.
