Don't believe you can do this yourself with 2003.  GFI has a product that might help, but that requires you to buy the software though.

Of course you probably already make backups of your information store as it is already and exmerge just lets you make backups to pst files.

I would suggest that you look at using a solution that does not involve PST files.
PST files stored on a network share are not supported and will corrupt very easily.
There are a number of third party solutions that will remove the email from Exchange without using PST files.
