How to browse a copy of an Exchange 2003 store?

Is there a way that I can export email messages from specific user accounts from a copy of the Exchange store without doing a restore?

Here's the deal:
My work has 3 ex-employees that may have leaked company information to a competitor.  The owners of the copy would like a copy of any of these employees emails that we have in old backups, but they want it in a way that they can easily browse and read themselves while out of the office, like on DVD or on their local drives.

What is the best way to go about this?

Thanks!

use exmerge to pull all the data from these mailboxes into local .pst files. You can burn the files on a dvd or cd and take them anywhere. To access the data you only need to open up outlook (not outlook express) and hit :FILE -> OPEN -> Outlook Data file

I am having a problem running ExMerge.exe.  I extracted the files to C:\Exmerge on my local workstation.
I then copied ExchMem.dl to the ExMerge directory as instructed on page 25 of the readme file.  

ExMerge, however, fails to run.  I get the following error:

"The application has failed to start because the dapi.dll was not found.  Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

Any ideas?

Yeah, run it from the exchange server itself. I'm assuming you have the permissions to do that. You'll need to be logged into the server as a user that has full access to the mailboxes of these individuals.
