You can't backup everything and exclude a specific folder unless you backup a folder at a time.

You can export the lot, then open the Exported PST file and delete the Personal Folder from the PST file (and the Deleted Items Folder), then hand that over.

No - if you do as you have mentioned, export, open the exported file, delete what isn't needed, then export the lot to another file again, then turn that file over, there should be no trace of anything in the deleted folders.

Would they have anything in the Sent Items that is personal?
