People can make the use of rules to do perform various tasks automatically and faster. Suppose, people want to see all emails from a specific person present in different folder or directory. At such instance, they can set up a rule which will be used by MS Outlook to move that email to that predefined folder. Other thing if people wish to move messages with particular words in the subject to a folder, flag messages from someone for follow-up or move email sent to a public group to a folder, move RSS items from a specific RSS feed to a folder or do anything like. There is only one solution. That is Rules in MS Outlook application.
Let us assume that people have set up some rules. Now, they want to change the system or just want to reinstall Windows operating system. Leading that, if they install Outlook app, they will not get those rules because Outlook saves rules on the system locally. To solve such issue, here is a solution.
