I need to rebuild my computer and I wish to copy all my outlook mailboxes and e-mails to a file and then copy them to the new rebuilt system. The problem I'm having is everything I try to copy only gives me the option to save in the outlook folders, I can't save to a network directory. Any ideas on how to do this?

You could do a find on your computer for all files ending in .pst to get your emails. You may have old ones or many you don't recognize. You can go to Tools>Accounts, double-click Personal Folders to see the path where the file is located. Do the same for any personal address books (.pab) you may have.
(repeat for additional profiles)
Then just copy the files. When your system is rebuild, you can put the files back and and just point to the correct files.

OR

Just go to File>Import/Export to export everything to a file.

You could try archiving all of your folders to the network drive using the archive option available in the outlook client. then export your address book to a file on the network. this is how i migrate outlook users.
