  • As far as I know, Outlook doesn’t have a built-in option to export and import Quick Parts. When creating a new building block, it was saved in NormalEmail.dotm. Aside from Quick Parts, this file also contains the settings for any Styles that you may have added or modified.

    You can copy this file to your backup location or to another computer’s or user’s Templates folder when Outlook is closed.

    You can find the NormalEmail.dotm file in the following location:

    C:\Users\%username%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Templates

    You can also distribute building blocks with templates. For example, you can create building blocks in a template and distribute the template to other users, who can save the template to the building blocks folder and use the building blocks you created.

    For more details, please refer to:  Section Save and distribute building blocks with a template

    Hope the information is helpful to you.

    Regards,

    Perry
