1. What is PST File
Microsoft Outlook 2010 is saving the mailbox locally using a PST file format. PST stands for Personal Storage Table. Basically, you have two separate entities: your mailbox server which keeps your emails online and is the main storage source, and your local computer is just a copy of your online mailbox stored in your PST files which are rendered by Outlook. That’s why you can still recover permanently deleted emails in Microsoft Outlook 2010 because you always have a local and an online copy. However, these two can get in sync and things can change a bit in terms of redundancy.
