You can create an Outlook data file, which is a .pst file, to archive older messages or move some items. It is important to note that these are saved locally.
To create an Outlook data file:
- From the HOME tab of the Ribbon, select New Items from the New group.
- In the drop-down list, select More Items, and scroll to select Outlook Data File.
- In the New Outlook Data File dialog box, select Outlook data file (.pst) and click OK.
- In the Create or Open Outlook Data File dialog box, type a name in the File name text box and then click OK.
Your file is saved in the Documents/Outlook Files folder.
