1. Outlook rules file.

A .rwz file contains rule definitions for Outlook up to an including Outlook 2000. They are obsolete in Outlook 2002 and later (which stores the information instead in .pst files or on an Exchange server).

The .rwz files would reside in the folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook

2. Outlook rules wizard file.

A .rwz file represents a set of rules that have been exported from Microsoft Outlook and which are therefore available for import into Outlook. The .rwz file is a binary file and cannot be edited. The only way to edit a .rwz file is to import it into Outlook where the rules can be edited as normal and then re-export the rules.

These files are also known as "Rules Wizard rules" files.

They are supported in all versions of Outlook (including Outlook 2013).
