Is it recommended to exclude .PST from being scanned? It might use a lot of resources to scan it and slow up the PC?

As told, PST direct AV scanning is NOT recommended.
Instead, either configure antivirus/antispam measures BEFORE mail arives into mailbox, or use antivirus feature to intercept POP3 or IMAP traffic and scan it.

is this for AntiVirus?  if you have email/Outlook protection from you AV, you kinda don't need to scan PSt's

Antivirus scanning of PSTs can cause corruption of that PST.

So it is not recommended to scan PSTs.
