Customer:

KamilAnwar1 :

Okay, which version of Outlook is it?

Customer:

KamilAnwar1 :

On the computer from where it needs to be exported?

Customer:

KamilAnwar1 :

Okay, please do the following

KamilAnwar1 :

Open Outlook 2010.
Go to File - Open and then click on Import.
Select Export to a file and then click Next.
Select Outlook Data File (.pst) and then click on Next.
Select the top-most folder, check the box Include subfolders and then click on Next. (usually, your email address)
Click on the Browse button.
Decide where you will export the .pst file and then click on OK.
Then click Finish
