If it's freeware/shareware and you can post it within the license
agreement, by all means, I'd love to grab it.

Do you recall if you can selectively export the data (ranges, with or
without attachments, recipient, etcetera)?  We'll almost definitely need
to reduce it to multiple PSTs but since trying to do so using Exmerge
(by the way, this should also be considered in response to Chris Wall's
suggestion: Exmerge can't seem to yank anything out, IIRC it's using
MAPI and so if Outlook can't open it, Exmerge also has a problem) failed
it'll be interesting to see if this can be made to work. 

Thanks again!

Rick

-------------------------------------------------------Rick,

That's quite a big MB indeed. Some time ago we had problems with a store
from a client. I then found a tool on the net named "Recovery for
Exchange Server 3.1" It can open a mailbox store and see what mailboxes
are in it. You can then select the mailbox you need and it will extract
it to an PST file. Maybe the size of the MB might be a problem because
there is a limit on PST files of 20 gbyte (only in Outlook 2003) but it
is worth a try. Maybe you can take the store ofline, create a copy of
the databse file, defragment it en then run the tool. If you are
interested I will publish it on my webserver. It is nearly 2 mb large.

Subject: [ExchangeList] Biggest Mailbox?

http://www.msexchange.org
-------------------------------------------------------Hey folks,

Just a quick poll - what's the biggest overall store, and single mailbox
you've seen?

We've got a client looking for assistance, and as it turns out they have
a store of 180 GB and a single mailbox of just about 45 GIGS.

Both far surpass anything I've seen, and I've worked with some big
companies in the past, but no one else has come close.

Needless to say, they're having problems, especially opening that
mailbox.  Anyone have any thoughts on a  way to extract the data in
there?  We've tried Outlook, OWA, MDBView, Exmerge, IMAPping and POPping
it off, but nothing seems able to get there.  Mail does keep getting
delivered, however, as it continues to grow.

Ideas, no matter how screwy, are welcome.

Rick
