Hi Heewon,
I can think of a couple of possible ways you might transfer your rules 
though I haven't actually done it.  One way might be to use the Files and 
Settings Transfer Wizard that's present in Windows XP and hopefully some 
other versions.  The wizard is generally used to migrate a bunch of your 
documents and settings from one computer to another, and it might try to 
move more stuff than you want it to.  However, I would assume that those 
message rules would be among the kinds of things that might be moved.

The other approach that might work, and this may be the scarier approach, 
is to find where the rules are located in your registry and save that 
section of the registry tree to a .reg file which you could then merge 
into the registry on the computer you want to move the rules to.  I am 
pretty sure that Outlook Express stores message rules in the registry.  If 
I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will set me straight.

Hope this helps,
