Managing .pst archives.

Is there a utility that allows you to manage .pst archives? I would like to combine archives from different machines, and then split them up into conveniently sized files, say of 10MB each, with dates. I would also like a simple viewer that allows me to read the archives without loading them into Outlook everytime I want to dig out an old email.

At the moment it's just confusion!

None seem to do what I want. It seems lke the easiest thing to do is simply to archive the pst yourself and make a new one, then view through Outlook.
