It really depends on what kind of account you were using. If it's Exchange or any other type of account that leaves copies of messages on the server, the mail should be redownloaded  automatically after you configure the new profile. Otherwise, you will have to export/import it.

When i ask my customer  she said she has an exchange account as i can see she's just a
local user at home so it would be a pop3 account

not necessarily a pop account with office 365 it will be an exchange account. check her documents\outlook files folder for the .pst.
