Outlook 2010: How to Export Emails

When Microsoft published Office 2007, the GUI change made a huge impact on the users. Outlook 2007 was spared at the time, and there was little change in the user interface. It is not so for Outlook 2010. This time, the GUI has completely changed, just like the other Office products.

I spent quite a while trying to figure out how to export emails in Outlook 2010 because of the interface change. I checked online help about exporting, but I didn’t find any help documents related to it. Finally, I found the Import and Export Wizard hidden in the GUI. To get to it, follow the steps:

  1. Click on File -> Open
  2. Click on Import. Yes, they hide the word “export.” Quite confusing, isn’t it?
  3. The Import and Export Wizard shows up. Click on Export to a file and follow the on-screen instructions to finish exporting emails.
