.PST file reached 2GB limit - unable to view archived emails

I am running Windows XP and have reached the 2GB limit of the .PST file used for archiving emails.  I am now unable to open my archive folders and view old emails.  Is there any method of retrieving the emails and reducing the .PST file into smaller managable files.

Many thanks for your help in advance, much appreciated.

Both offline files and personal folders files stop accepting data in Outlook 2002 and Outlook 2003.
