How to backup Webmail to local pst

Since you want to backup your webmail account to a PST file, have to assume that you have Outlook installed on your system since PST files are proprietary to Outlook (unless you're planning to use a PST viewer).

If that's the case, one solution would be to simply add the email account to the Outlook profile and then export the <root> folder for that account to a PST file making sure to check the box for "include sub-folders"
this is not possible

you need outlook to backup data in PST

I guess it depends on webmail. Which webmail do you have?
If there is no option within webmail then you need Outlook, or some other email client to be able to do it.
