Nope.  You'll need to off-load some of data to PST. I'd say archive it and
keep it local to the machine.
Additionally, I haven't heard of anyone having a mailbox over 1.5GB and
being happy with the performance.

I have a user who has a fairly large mailbox (2.9GB to be exact).  He is on
the road a lot and wants to use his mailbox offline.  He was on Outlook 2003
at the time which handled making it offline (ost file) no problem.  He got a
new Blackberry device, but it wouldn't sync with Outlook 2003 so we reverted
back to Office XP.  The Office XP size limitation on the ost file doesn't
like the almost 3GB of data.  He wants his whole mailbox with him when he
travels so I can't really pick and choose certain folders.  Is there a way
to work around this, short of putting folders to PSTs?
