Can any one Please describe the process for back-up of all arrival mails in the OUTLOOK 2007?

I want all my arrival mails to be received in the Inbox of my default Mailbox and in the Backup PST as well.

Welcome to Geeks2Go!

Not sure what your problem is. When you export to a PST file, that file contains All your email folders and all the messages within those folders.

Recently i got an important mail and accidentally deleted that mail. I'm asking if there's any way out to keep a copy of all arrival mails in some other PST as they arrive in my default Inbox (if any).

Yes there is. If you want to create a PST backup just for your "Inbox", select just the "Inbox" folder when you go through the PST export process instead of selecting all the folders. Call this backup file INBOX.PST so you know exactly what it contains.

Open Outlook, go to File >> Import & Export.
Export to a file.
Select 'PST' as the file type & click 'next'.
You should now see "Select the folder to export from", that's where you select only the 'Inbox' folder (highlight it with left-click).

Thanks a lot.. That solves half of my problem.. Is there any settings which automatically takes back up when a mail is received. Because the procedure you have told me takes back up only when i follow it.. If there's any way to take back up when any mail is received, please share it as well...!
