Is there any way to use  Exmerge that will allow to export pst files above the 2GB limit?

We need to export some mail boxes from an exchange 2000 server to pst files using exmerge. Teh mail boxes are about 3 GB.  I found that exmerge stops at 2 GB. I was readying that you can do the process twice and have two pst files ( 1.5 GB each). How would I do that?
Any other ways?
I can not use outlook, since no computer are joined to that old domain.
If I could use exmerge to do more than 2 GB pst's , then I woudl use outlook 2003 to import to exchange on each user.
