Default Backing up outlook emails

Am I right in thinking the file outlook.pst holds all my emails (sent, received, drafts, and saved emails) and email folders and holds them for all email addresses I and my wife own?

SO much advice on the net on how to back outlook up. I just wish my pc could read then it would know where what tab, options and boxes it should display as all the methods I found don't work

Your first pragraph is correct - the PST file contains everything.


For backing up, why not just export to file? This then gives you the option to import teh back-up into other email clients. This is how I do my outlook back-ups.

I don't seem to be able to export to a drive, just somewhere in outlook

Do you back up the whole PC? If not I'd recommend doing so. If you back up the PC you'll have a backup of your mail, all your pictures documents etc.

If you just want to back up the PST, close Outlook then find the file (if you can't find it, reopen Outlook and check the location via File, Account Settings, Data files) then copy it to somewhere eg. a USB disk.

Or, from within Outlook, File, Open & Export, Import/Export, Export to File, Outlook Datafile (pst), select your account (eg. fred.bloggs@btinternet.com) then browse to wherever you want to backup to. Repeat for each account.

I also faced the same problem, I also want a backup of my all messages and emails, but one of my friend who is iPhone user told me about a messaging app and I also found it interested, https://imessageonpcfree.com/ by following steps given by this site you can also download it onto your laptop if you are not an iPhone user.
