    When I export to a file, the file is saved as an EXCEL file. I don't use EXCEL.
    Can someone walk me through the process, please.

    What are you exporting, and what type of file are you selecting during the export?

    A .csv isn't inherently an excel file, you can open it in notepad for example, but it will lay out the info in a more readable way.

    Many applications can open and layout info in csv files, a web editor is one such.

    As DoubleHelix asked, what sort of file are you exporting and what do you want to open it in?

    I use two computers. Are you telling me that I would be able to import the csv file into the second PC and have both MS Outlooks have the same information?

    You could just copy the PST file over. However, that won't affect the behavior of new e-mails. For that you'd have to configure Outlook to leave the messages on your provider's servers and then manually delete them from there.
