How do I go about backing up specific items on my server?

I've decided to reinstall my server and I only want to preserve certain items. Without backing up anything else, how can I backup my Exchange Mail Store? Also if I only back this up and restore it on the new build, there won't be any problems will there?

Thanks in advance.

I would suggest using Exmerge to dump your mailboxes to PST files which you can then reimport later to the new server.

Exmerge will work, but you need to know how to use it to restore the mailboxes:
