Is this on an exchange server or like a personal POP3 account?

Not exactly sure what your meaning. But let me just add, when you are saving to a .pst file, make sure to check the box where it says, "include subfolders." So if you go to the "personal folder" and save from there, and include subfolders, it will save the whole shabang. Just my 1 cent, cuz it probably aint worth 2.
