Don't know that that info is available anywhere, the registry key isn't human readable, so hard to say

As for other locations here is a posting showing the default locations for most files

The outlook .pst holds all the information. It's located at: C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook folder.

The PST only holds emails, nothing related to profile information

That's stored in registry in following location
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem\Profiles\ProfileName

So you can export those to another pc to move profile

Not talking about the actual emails, but what location the emails will be stored or whether there is a OST file configured for the account.   I am looking for the Account settings of the profile.

I don't get it. You ask for the data files (is the .pst). Now you want the account settings?

Take a look at smck's post. There you find the location of the profile information of your account.

Thank you all for your help.
I figured that the settings were stored in the registry, but was curious if there was a file that also stored additional information (ie. Data Files that are connected to the profile or PAB) .

I wanted to delete this question, but figured I would get flack for that so I awarded the responder with the closest answer.
