Need suggestions for an exchange user with 47,000 items in her mailbox

I have a user who has over 47,000 items in her mailbox (almost a 1GB mailbox with a 1GB limit), with email dating back to 1999 which she claims that she needs.  Occasionally she'll receive that popup message from her outlook task icon saying that "Outlook is trying to retrieve data from the Exchange server" and of course her Outlook client would freeze for a moment.  I can't think of any other way to improve her Outlook performance other than exporting the majority of her older email to a PST and then shrinking her mailbox limit to keep her size and number of items down.  Any other suggestions that wouldn't involve using PSTs?

Nothing wrong with PST files, I use them throughout my corporate network, You could even store the PST file on the file server for safe keeping. All an archive does is copy stuff into a PST file
