I have just closed an old email account but before hand copied the contact list in Outlook 2010 to one of my other email accounts.  It there a way of storing a contact list in Outlook 2010 without having to store it against an email account?

See the instructions on this page for adding a new data file (i.e. a .pst file).  Once you've added the data file it will appear in the sidebar.  Add a contacts file to the new data file.  Add contacts to the folder from the other account.  

I'm not sure what you mean by "how will outlook identify it".  The data file will appear with whatever name you've given it.  Ditto for the contacts folder you create in it.  You can move the contacts to another computer simply by copying the .pst file to the other computer and connecting it to Outlook.
