I am using outlook 2000 with a login id to a exchange server of our company.

I would like to ask, where is my email located? Is it in the exchange server or in my computer?

If the email is in the exchange, can I make a local folder in outlook and put them there? Ultimately I want to manipulate the content of some emails, so I need to know how to access the email via VBA or other open source tool/plugin/extension.

P.S. I've watch this post, does the pst file mean the personal folder in outlook?

It is very likely that the data is located on the exchange server, and that you should write an Outlook Plug-In with VSTO. This way, the physical location of the data is not important, as long as Outlook has access to it.
