How do I back up my Exchange email to my local computer?

In Outlook, click “File > Import and Export.”

Select “Export to a file."

Click “Next.”
Select “Personal Folder File (.pst).”

Click "Next."
Select your mailbox.
Make sure "Include Subfolders" is checked.

Click “Next.”
In the "Save exported file as:" field, type C:\mailbkup.pst.

Click “Finish.”
When the "Create Microsoft Personal Folders" box appears, click "OK."

At this point Outlook should copy your entire mail account to your hard drive.
