    You'll need to store it in outlook first and then export as .pst.

    Here are s the guidelines:

    1. Enable POP in your Gmail account available in Mail Settings | Forwarding and POP - Select 'Enable POP for all mail' or 'Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on.' Be sure to click 'Save Changes'. You can choose to trash messages in Gmail after accessing them with POP or let them stay in Inbox or Archive them.

    2. Configure Microsoft Outlook as POP email client - Read detailed instructions for configuring Microsoft Outlook 2003 or Microsoft Outlook Express and Outlook 2002 (XP)

    3. Test the GMail-Outlook connection. If everything works fine, click Send Receive (F9) in Microsoft Outlook. Your GMail messages become available in batches in MIcrosoft Outlook Inbox. It may take some time for all of your mail to download if you have lots of messages. Outlook status bar will display the download statistics in real time.

    4. Microsoft Outlook will store all your GMail Email messages and attachments in a file on your hard disk called a personal folders (.pst) file. To create a pst file of your GMail message, click Import And Export on the Outlook File menu. Click Export To File, and then click Next. Click Personal Folder File (.pst) , and then click Next. Choose the Inbox folder that contains your GMail emails, and then click Next. Click the Browse button, and then select the location to save the file. In the File Name box, type a descriptive file name, and then click OK. Click Finish.

    You may use view .pst files without outlook
