The easiest way is to Create a new PST personal Folder on his local machine. Then copy the Inbox / Sent folders and anything else outside those folders that he needs to keep to the new personal folder.

Once he has verified that he has what he wants to keep - He can delete the old emails from his exchange mailbox

He can then either leave the pst file showing or delete it from the data management (it won't delete the file - just won't show it.  Strongly suggest that he copy the PST file to a DVD for extra protection.

Not a bad idea to copy the contacts, calendar, notes at the same time

The user can also just use the auto archive feature within outlook to do this on a regular basis.

file, open, import/export
export to a file
outlook data file (Pst)
choose the required contents (if you choose mailbox at the top it will cover everything inc calendar etc)
choose a path to save the newly created file
click next / finish

when complete close/reopen outlook

to access the file goto file, open, outlook data file and browse to earlier selected location - hey presto!

What is mailbox size? Export to PST is one solution, however large PST can get corrupt easily. Keep PST size under 2 GB, if mailbox size is above 2 GB, split it into multiple PST files. Remember Outlook creates PST in UNICODE format.

I know 2GB is not applicable, With Outlook 2010 it support upto 50GB, however, chances of large PST corruptions are very high and it is recommends to split it into multiple PST's rather having one large PST.

Provided you are running a newer version of Outlook at home - you need to go into Data management - add the PST as a personal folder - It will then be available in your outlook as a new Personal Folder - It will not effect you existing home email
