I have pop mail and a user deleted all their sent items from outlook 2010 mail.  I have a carbonite backup that I am currently downloading however I only want to restore the sent items from the backup .pst file.

How can I make sure that I only restore the sent items from PST file?

Carbonite (unless it has changed) won't know that there are sent items and other folders. It just knows there's a file. I'd recommend loading that PST as a secondary PST and then copying things in Outlook from one PST to the other.

Quizwedge is correct, you will want to attach the recoved PST to outlook, from there you can move the Sent Items from the PST back into the Outlook Sent Items

Can't I just import the items to the sent folder from the backup pst?

The file currently on the computer is the first PST. The backup PST is the second PST. You need to load both into Outlook so you can copy from one to the other.

Here's an article on how to add a PST file to Outlook. http://www.wikihow.com/Add-a-PST-to-Outlook-2010

Yes you can select the folder in this case the sent items from the pst and import them back into the sent items,

Attaching the pst to the outlook client just gives the ability to move what you were looking for and possibly something else that was removed and not realized. That being said you could always just import the pst without duplicates as well for all folders.
