Yes you will be able to open it, the size limit of an old PST file is 2Gb, a
PST that was created with Outlook 2003 has a size limit of around 22Tb if I
remember correctly, but that only applies if the PST file was created in
Outlook 2003, if it was created in a previous version of Outlook the 2Gb
limit still applies.

If you archive a PST file in Outlook 2002 and then upgrade to Outlook 2003 -
will you be able to open the pst that you archived in Outlook 2003? What is
the size limit for pst files in 2002 vs 2003?
