How can you script an export from outlook 2003/2007?

How can I script an export from Outlook 2003/2007 so that it would just back everything up to a .pst file on the local HDD so it could be imported manually later? Has anyone done this before?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

I'll have to write my own. I just accepted it because on the surface it looked good, but it's for exporting from Exchange and this is a generic IMAP server.

I thought it would just export from Outlook right on the local computer and not care what the e-mail server was. :(
