How do I export sent items and calendar entries from Outlook web access?

Our new HR manager has been using OWA while waiting for her official laptop.  Now she has it, I connected her Outlook to the webmail.company.xx server and it retrieves all mail items no problem but calendar and sent items are not available.  Surely anything created in OWA is on the same Exchange server?  She has a lot of calendar entries that will take a very long time to import by hand.  Is there any way of getting them into her Outlook please?
Many thanks in advance

Hey,

If they are created within her OWA then yes, they should be in her mailbox on the server and she should be able to see them when opening her Outlook and connect to the server. But did she create the items within her OWA? Or did she use her own Local Outlook? If the last one is the case, you should export the files on her local Outlook into a pst file and import it into het Outlook profile on the Exchange server.

Hi rhandels,
Quick answer is yes she set them up via her own OWA so they are all on the server.  Turns out that the link while out of office via 'proper' outlook is POP3 and that doesn't support calendar sent etc so.... tomorrow i am sending her to the head office to import her pst from the server to pick up all latent messages and calendar etc items from the IT dept there.
Guess we both found the answer but you are welcome to the points.
