Moving autoarchive settings to new computer (Outlook 2007)

Outlook 2007, moving from WinXP to Windows 7 machine: Copying over the *.pst, junk mail and other rules worked like a treat, but I have many different auto-archive settings for various folders that I move mail into. Is there an easy way to move these settings as well? I know I may have to change the target file locations because the file structure is different on the Windows 7 machine from Windows XP, but it would be nice to get the basics pre-filled. Thanks.

Hmm. Moving the pst and opening it in outlook should have maintained the archive settings as they are per folder. Is that pst set as default?

If they were lost, unfortunately there is no way to move them or apply them in bulk.
