How do you back up emails from Outlook 2010, to a USB flash drive?

If you just want a backup copy for security purposes just copy the .pst file that Outlook store it everything in. See here to find where that file is.

If its all of them then the .pst files as others have described. If its just one or a few you can left click and drag or right click and paste the message to wherever you want and it is saved as .msg file. Just as other files you can select as many as you want with the left click + Shift or the + Ctrl key held down and make a selection.

File > Export/Import > Export to PST

Have never had this method fail me. And also, Outlook 2013 (and no doubt Outlook 2016) will also accept PST files from 2010.

I am not aware of any fee email client that can support pst files directly, but I believe in Mozilla Thunderbird, a free email program, a PST file can be imported after a file format conversion. Thunderbird supports MBOX file format. When a PST file is converted into MBOX then it can be imported into Thunderbird. However I think that you need a 3rd party converter such as Stellar PST to MBOX Converter. However this is not free.

Of course there maybe other conversion apps out there that are free.
You can also get a converter for .msg files which as I mention you can drag out individual or multiple messages from Outlook. Again it's not a free converter.

It's not something I use myself so that's about all I can offer.

Hi, Don't want to sound too much of a misery, but here on TBB we're a friendly lot, generally, so it means that whenever messages are sent,a "please or thank you" goes a long way.
Just saying "how do I" with no politeness, isn't how TBB works. People - especially the staff - give time and effort to help others, so basic politeness is the order of the day.
I imagine that I've come over a bit prissy, but politeness costs nothing and goes a long way.Cheers,Les.

I'm sorry but my grammar and spelling have never been the best. Also I was having trouble with putting into words what I wanted to say. I will say thanks when I get the answer I need.

Effusive thank-yous are not needed. What is useful is to know what the actual solution was. Until you have one, keep asking.
