Can one export Outlook email accounts RRS feed

  • Question

  • Probably not on the right part of the forum but the options make it nigh impossible to get where I might want to be. I'm using Outlook 2013 and my question today is, can one export the email accounts, such as hotmail, Exchange accounts to a backup file as we do with the PST file. 

    Apparently, the PST file does not include the various email accounts one might have, so am wondering how one might export the email accounts.
