Outlook 2010 backup

I need to reinstall my Win 7 O/S. I have Office 2010 installed and and have Outlook setup
to my company's exchange server. I have about a years worth of Email and lots of folders and tons of email messages...I'm afraid I'll screw something up and won't be able to restore to be exactly as it was. Is there an easy way to do this? I need to be 100% sure.

Agreed, as long as you don't have pst's, and everything is in the the actual mailbox, you will be ok.

Good luck! :)

1. How do I know if I have PST's? (Outlook 2010)
2. How do I verify that no mail messages/folders  are stored locally?
3. Can I backup ALL the mailbox data (mail/calander/contacts/tasks) locally before I begin? If so how?

Thanks

One last question...you say I can not back up my mailbox data, are you sure about this? Isn't this what a PST file can be used for? I was thinking of placing all my mail/folders into PST.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
