I think that information is stored in your blist.xml file. More
information about where that can be found is here:
Deleting an account deletes that accounts list of buddies from your
local blist.xml file, including the notes. You can certainly back it
up. I think maybe if you want to delete an account and re-add it
again, you could follow these steps:
1. Exit Pidgin
2. Make a backup of blist.xml
3. Start Pidgin, delete the account, re-add it, exit Pidgin
4. Copy the old blist.xml back to the original location
