    Outlook Back Up .PST File Question

    I have a an issue with outlook sending email to the spam folder. My question is if I backup the.pst file and reinstall outlook will all the rules that were created for the spam mail be saved in the back up and be reinstated once I open the saved .pst file in the newly installed outlook? Thank you for your help

    Which version of Outlook are you using?

    I don't think message rules are stored in the pst file... Having you been making the emails to Never BLock sender or domain?
    Imagine a world where dogs took bad owners to the pound...

    Thank you for the reply
    The version is 2013
    Yes, rules are made for allowing domain and sender to come in. Its a weird issue. If an email from some one is sent directly to me I may or may not get it in my inbox. If I get an email that is forwarded to me from someone's email that I have setup to receive a copy of it, it goes in to the spam folder. I have never seen outlook at like this. That's why I want to uninstall and reinstall it but I don't want to loose all of my email.

    I just have to make sure if I reinstall and then open the saved .pst that the rules are not saved to the .pst.

    Thank you

    When you backup the pst file, the Rules. Signature, and the Stationary are not saved. These are located in different locations. As for the Junk email filter, have a look at THIS as this shows you how you can disable the filter.
    It's not the computers that keep having problems, it's the users!!
