    The Personal Folders (.pst) are in Unicode format in Microsoft Outlook 2010. The maximum size of .pst is pre-configured limit of 50 GB. Also if we want to change the size of the file in Outlook 2010 that can be increased or decreased by making changes to the Windows registry.

    .pst file is is an open proprietary file format used to store messages, calendar events and other releted item within the Microsoft Exchange Client, Windows Messaging, and Microsoft Outlook. This type of file format is also known as Personal Folder File, Off-line Folder File, Personal Address Book (.pab). by moving file from the server to the .pst, the user can free the storage space on their mailservers. In order to use this file .pst from another location the user have to access to that file in a straight line over a network from his mail client.

    MBox hold the collection of electronic mail messages. The entire message is concatenated and stored as plain text in a single file. Some of the e-mail client uses an adjustment of the mbox format meant for their mail folders.
