    Open up Outlook, click File>Import and Export:
    "Export to a file"
    "Personal Folder File (.pst)"
    Select "Personal Folders" and check the "Include subfolders" box
    Enter a location for the backup file and hit Finish.

    You can use the same Import and Export wizard to retrieve your mails from the backup files later. Hope that helps. :)
