    You can create a backup file of your digital ID in Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 and secure the file with a password. Backup files for Microsoft Exchange digital IDs have an .epf extension; while backup files for Internet e-mail digital IDs have a .pfx extension.
    1. On the Tools menu, click Trust Center, and then click E-mail Security.
    2. Under Digital IDs (Certificates), click Import/Export.
    3. Click Export your Digital ID to a file.
    4. Click Select, click the digital ID that you want to back up, and then click OK. The certificate appears in the Digital ID box.
    5. In the Filename box, type a name and path for the backup file that you want to create, or click Browse.
    6. In the Password box, create a password for the backup file.
    7. In the Confirm box, type your password again.
    8. Click OK.

    Unless this was supposed to be a reply to a member's request for help on this topic, I thought this type of post should go into "Tips and Tricks".

    Why not just post the link to http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HP012300231033.aspx instead of copying the entire body of that page and pasting it into your own post?
