I have Outlook 2010 and I connect to an exchange server 2003.

I do not want to keep a copy of my email on the server. I want all email to be stored locally on my computer.

Thanks in advance

you need to configure your profile with a PST file and have all mail delivered to the PST

So why are you using Exchange?

Exchange provides a way to backup your e-mail - you cannot backup email from a PST file if outlook is open (as it often is for most people).  You also will NOT have access to e-mail via Outlook Web Access.

The owner does not want any chance of anyone getting a hold of his email.

So no backup is needed or OWA.

yes. He needs full functionality of Outlook, but wants to pull the messages off the server onto a PST file.

This means no mail stores on the server for this particular mailbox. No backups and no webmail required.

Just pull messages off the server into PST.

He will still have a mailbox on the server. You will have to check his account on the server and disbale email retention policy or it will actually have it recovereable on exchange (by default 14 days).
