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

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.
