Unless you are on an Exchange server your pst file will be there until the cows come home.  :)

If you are connecting to an exchange server it will be in your account type.  Normally this is how companies do email.
However if you are using email at home then you are probably using IMAPI or POP through your ISP and hence a PST file (personal storage table).
Take a look at this Microsoft page:
