Just like OST, PST is a file format used by Microsoft Outlook. It is also known as Outlook Personal Information Store File, and is used for storing personal information used by Microsoft Outlook and Exchange; includes e-mail folders, contacts, addresses, and other data.
PST files can be viewed with such applications as
Microsoft Outlook 2010
Microsoft Exchange Server 2010
