Export Outlook 2003 Rules to text

I'm running into the rules size limit for Outlook 2003, so I want to merge/delete my rules. I want to be able to see them all as opposed to editing them one at a time. The export format for Outlook rules is some binary "*.rwz" file.

"I suspect that you are out of luck... a classic MS proprietary format.

However, a subset of the rules wizard interface is supported via VBA - see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb206763.aspx for details. You could script something up to export the rules as human-readable but it may well not cover all your rules.

Good luck!"
