Import big message file in Outlook 5.02

I configured Outlook 5.02 on MacOS 9.1 and replaced the 'message' file in the Main User folder by a message file of 1.39 Gb (! yes, indeed: gigabytes!). Outlook won't recognize this file. It is also impossible to import it.
Given the size there is a lot of info in this file (all the messages I kept for years) that I don't want to lose.
Can anyone tell me how I get access to this file or how I can recover it? Tnx.
BTW: I have 250 Xtra points for a working solution.

Where did this 1.3 gig file come from? A previous copy of Outlook?

No, it was a 5.02 backup that I tried to reinstall after a crash.

So, it did come from a previous copy of Outlook. You couldnt save the original file after the crash?

Well, my guess is that somehow in the backup the file got corrupted. Especially if you cant import it.
