Usually PST's will corrupta t 1GB or 2GB. A customer of mine, when
managers travel ouside Brazil, they do an exmerge of the mailbox and
deliver him a CD with the PST (that's remote Exchange access, folks!

When the PST reached 1GB very rarely we would be able to open it.

I have some users with rather large mailboxes, ranging in size from 2GB
6GB in some cases.  This is on Exchange 2003 Enterprise.

What kinds of issues should I be aware of when dealing with large
mailboxes?  Are there any limits to mailbox or PST size (other than
limits) ?

What process would you recommend for importing a 6GB mailbox?  The
mailbox is in Outlook.  the file is too big to cut to a DVD naturally.

Best regards
