Backing up my old emails

At work I'm using a Macbook Pro with OS X 10.7.4, running Outlook 2011. Today, I have to ship off this computer to get an upgrade and security update, and they will be wiping out the contents of the hard drive. They've left us very minimal instructions to back up any files we need. For me, the absolute most important thing is having access to all of my old emails and their attachments. So, QUESTION: how do I backup all of my emails in Outlook so that I'll be able to access them on my newly-wiped computer? Where are email files stored on my computer? How can I back up the attachments on the old emails? How do I avert total disaster?

OUtlook deleted message folder

My Outlook deleted file is 17,000 messages. It runs off of a windows server for our organization I understand that is not the best idea. But i find that i return to even deleted messages with great frequency. What would be the best way to archive those messages so i can easily search them while improving the performance of outlook?
