Problem connecting Outlook to mailbox in Recovery Storage Group

Hi, I am running Exchange2003 and need to restore a users mailbox from a month ago. I successfully restored the entire IS to the Recovery Storage Group on a non-production server. I was able to mount and browse with ExMerge.

The problem is that the mailbox is 7GB and ExMerge has a 2GB limitation. When I export I only get 2GB pst file. Usually I get around this by opening the mailbox in Outlook2007 and exporting to a pst. However, I am unable to open this mailbox on the RSG in Outlook. I get error message saying that the user name cannot be resolved.
How can I get the full 7GB mailbox into PST, OR into my production Exchanege where I can open it?

Thanks!

use the options button on EXMerge and enter a date range, or split apart the folders you are exporting.  then reimport into one mailbox when you're finished

supports, your filtering technique helped me get around the immidiate issue. Thanks.
However I still want to know how to connect Outlook to a mailbox in RSG, or how to move database from RSG to production.

Thanks.
