Backing up email in your @northwestern.edu (Microsoft 365) account in Outlook for macOS
Your @northwestern.edu account will be automatically deleted after you leave the University and cannot be recovered. If you want to back up your emails and contacts, you need to create a backup personal storage (PST) file in Outlook before your NetID expires and you lose access to your email account.
- Select the Inbox that you wish to back up/export.
- Select File > Export...
- Choose the types of items you want to back up, then click Continue.
- Enter a name to save the backup file as and then select where you wish the .olm file to be saved to. Click Save once you are done.
