Outlook 365 e-mail rules – How to import and export e-mail rules

Outlook 365 e-mail rules helped me having organized mails for more than 15 years now. The folder system combined with the customs rules I wrote made Outlook even more powerful. I use rules to sort out more frequent contacts or important e-mails, invoices, delivery notes, etc.

Having to re-install windows or having a system crash where you lose all rules is kind of annoying. There fore as always the best course of action would be to make a copy of the rules and keep them in a safe space (same as it should be done for the PST file with all e-mails – you can find the tutorial on this link).

Luckily for us, Microsoft made it easy for us to export and import all the rules we created.

Outlook select Manage rules

Open Microsoft Outlook, File menu and select “Manage rules”.

Outlook - select Options

After the window has open, select “Options”.

Outlook - import export rules

There you choose whether you want to Export your Rules or you want to import a new set of rules by selecting a previously made file.

In conclusion, we have now a backup of our Outlook 365 e-mail rules to work with.

About Microsoft Office 365:

Individuals can use Outlook as a stand-alone application; organizations can deploy it as multi-user software (through Microsoft Exchange Server or SharePoint) for such shared functions as mailboxescalendarsfoldersdata aggregation (i.e., SharePoint lists), and appointment scheduling. Microsoft has released apps for most mobile platforms, including iOS and Android. In addition, Windows Phone devices can synchronize almost all Outlook data to Outlook Mobile. Using Microsoft Visual Studio, developers can also build their own custom software that works with Outlook and Office components.[6]
