Outlook 2013 All imported Mail Rules in error when imported into new profile

I use Comcast email with an iMAP file for my incoming emails, and I have subfolders to sort out incoming mail. I have a set of Mail Rules to do automatic sorting into the subfolders. I created a second email profile for that same Comcast account, also iMAP. I exported all my Mail Rules from the first profile and imported them into my second profile account. The Rules are all imported, but they are all in error. Why is that? Is there a way to automatically re-enable them for Outlook?

You need to go into each rule and reselect the folder - the folder assignments are linked to the original profile.
Ouch. I was hoping there was an "easier" answer. :mad: Seems like that capability should be a feature request.

If you could use the same data file, the rules might carry over. To do that, you'd need to copy the profile then edit it - as long as the two profiles shared the data file, it should work.
