How to archive your mails in MS Outlook
- In your main Outlook window, click on File > New > Outlook Data File > Office Outlook Personal Folders File (pst)
- Enter a filename and browse to a folder where you would like to place the data file. (Tip: Place your outlook archive in a folder named “outlook” or “email” on your data drive (usually labeled drive E: or F:))
- CLick OK. In a newly opened window type the Name (how your offline folder will look in Microsoft Outlook folders’ tree), choose Encryption Settings if needed and password.
- Drag’n’drop your items/folders from Exchange Server Mailbox into newly-created Personal Folder.
Special thanks to Ryan Lucero, our system adminstrator at PODD, for these steps. (I didn’t ask his permission to use his memorandum email titled “Urgent Announcement”. LOL)
