Corrupted Exchange 2007 Mailbox

I have a corrupted Exchange 2007 mailbox. I cannot open it in Outlook. It is not an Outlook client issue, it happens on any PC I log into. I can use it with OWA, although that occasionally freezes up.
I need a way to repair it or export the contents so I can create a new account and import. However, I cannot create an RSG (which is a whole other issue) Is there a way to do this without an RSG?

With Exchange 2007, you can just move the mailbox to another store which will cleanup the mailbox.  It will leave behind any corrupted items, so there may be some data loss, but this is the simplest way to handle a bad mailbox in Exchange 2007.

So I can just create another store and move it? And then can I move it back? We only use one store.

Creating Active Directory Users from a Text File

I did move the mailbox and created a new Outlook profile but the problem persisted. It was fixed by running Outlook.exe /cleansharing. This cleans out any SharePoint synchronization like calendars, which I did have.

If all else fails, export the data off the server into a pst using powershell, then import the pst back into the new account you created.
Here is a quick guide on how to.
