If it is using exchange protocol, yes. To check navigate to %userprofile%\apdata\local\micrsoft\outlook there should be a *.ost file with the same name as the outlook profile. The ost is recreated when the profile is recreated. Also you can create a new mail profile using the mail center in the controll panel.

You'll want to check whether your Exchange configuration allows users to create .pst files. This is usually just for email archiving with Exchange. If not, there will be an .ost file

When user mailboxes became very large, the .ost file can start having issues similar to .pst corruption. The fix is to close Outlook, navigate to where the .ost file is located, rename it <file>.ost.bak or .ost.old, and then reboot and reopen Outlook. Outlook will rebuild the .ost file by pulling down everything from the Exchange server.
