Details of PST files on Microsoft® Outlook 2003
What are PST files? How can PST files be created on Microsoft Outlook 2003?
Microsoft Outlook 2003 uses PST files to store its data. A file is called outlook.pst by default. This file contains your e-mails, contacts, information about the e-mail folder structure, etc. E-mails that are received in Microsoft Outlook 2003 are directly written to the PST file. All Microsoft Outlook versions use PST files to store e-mail, contacts, calendar data and more. Microsoft Outlook 2003 uses a PST file format capable of saving Unicode data that has no theoretical size limit but a practical limit of 20GB.
