How do I backup my emails sitting on Exchange mailbox to a pst file on my own machine?   I  downloaded Outlook Personal Folders Backup, but it cannot see my mailbox on the server.  I will continue to use these in my current account, but need these as reference in another domain, and it would be great to have a copy of this stuff on hand

In Outlook 2003 go to the file menu and choose new Outlook data file. Choose a type of pst file that the pop up box gives you. In my case I get Office Outlook Person Folders File (.pst) and Outlook 97-2002 Personal Folders File (.pst). The first choice in my case is the better choice. but yours may vary depeinding on your version of outlook.
Click OK and choose a place to save the pst.
It will now show up in your Mail Items on the left.
Then all i do is Right clcik on any folder in my mailbox and drag and drop onto the pst folder on the left. You will get a pop up menu that asks if you want tomove or copy the folder you just dropped. Choose what ever you like and wait for the files to go.

Hope that helps.
