How can I set it, so that I can pull all my emails off our exchange server and store them locally only? We have a mailbox limit, and I keep everything.

You can use offline store or personal folders to store your emails locally on your computer Hard Drive.

I need to store them only on my computer, not on exchange. What I need to do is pull all my emails off of the exchange server every time I connect to it. Sorta like a POP3 connection.

TOOLS - SERVICES - ADD - PERSONAL FOLDERS
Browse to where you want to save new new .pst file locally and give it a name.
Now you should see a new set of folders where you can drag your messages off the server and store them locally.

You can either change your delivery location to the local.pst after it has been setup or use the rules wizard to move certain messages ( or all of them I guess) to the local .pst.

To move all of the messages at once, highligh 1 message, hit CTRL-A, and drag them all to the local .pst.

You should also be able to create  a PST going to
start --> control panel --> mail --> data files and creating a personal folder

move the messages as meintsi has said

Do you mean for new mail? or am I missing something?

Then its TOOLS - SERVICES - DELIVERY and change the location to the local .pst.

What I am looking for is to be able to check my phone messages and leave, my laptop is always on. There is the reason.

What I need outlook to do is connect (this already works) and download all my new messages locally onto my machine (sorry for saying sync, I am actually just pulling all my messages off the server.)

The problem is I can sync with the server because of our mailbox limit, so what I would like it to do is get all of my new emails, contacts, calendar items, tasks, etc... off of the server and onto my laptop.

tools > e-mail accounts > view change existing accounts > then in here on bottom left is delivery location, you can create a new outlook data file if you do not have one. pointing delivery of messages here will store on local pc not exchange server. then you can drag and drop all folders to personal folders
