After switching from POP3 to IMAP all rule have gone.

Within Outlook folder tree the 'old' PST still there (just renamed like accountname-pst-at-outlook.com).
Likewise, I also renamed the actual .pst.

Is there a way to recover those rules?
Sadly I didn't back them up: didn't realize what all would be gone because of this switch.

Thanks.

I am afraid, that is not possible now. Before switching the account from POP3 to IMAP, you could have imported the rules. But there are chances that those rules might not work as paths may vary in new account configuration.

Here is the link you can refer to import/export rules: Import or export a set of rules

Thanks,

Only solution : remove IMAP account, setup POP3 account, using the .pst file, then the rules are visible again and can be exported to .rwz file.
I did so successfully.

However, I don't know (didn't try yet) whether Outlook (365) allows importing the rules file (.rwz)
