The export feature saves messages only.
If you want to back up all aspects of Windows Mail, including
account settings, rules, etc. use this free third party utility:

It does not transfer contacts, but you can easily copy and paste
the folder C:\Users\username\Contacts.

However, any mail sent from this account simply dissapears. It appears in the Sent items folder (in OWA for the SVC_SqlServer account) but the recipient (me, in this case) never receives it!
