How do I backup the send/receive group settings so that I can restore them
later if I have to re-image or reload my computer?

I think the Office Save My Settings wizard should be able to do that (but I
didn't try it).

See this: http://www.slipstick.com/config/backup.asp
The mail location for user-specific Outlook data in the registry is
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging
Subsystem\Profiles

It's completely customizable. Edit the file %ProgramFiles%\Microsoft
Office\Office11\OPW11USR.INI to include just what you want the Save My
Settings wizard to save. You can even have it save the mail profile key
mentioned above. In fact, it's already configured to save the profile if
the profile's name is "Outlook".
