You'd better split the mails and make sure the PST file size is less than 50GB, otherwise, there may be performance problems.

It is more than 4 millions emails so i can not open it through outlook or view it anyhow.

perhaps a better option would be to make the mailbox available via POP3 and download the messages into an outlook client.

I would set up an outlook client with several PST's and set up client based rules to move items to different PST files, You can create rules like "received within a specific time frame", "with a size between a specific range" etc to spread the messages over different PST's.

Make sure to delete from server.

you may find it takes a REALLY long time to get the pop3 session going, make sure to increase your time out in Outlook. You *may* need to use another mail client and store the messages as eml's in order to set things like "only download 4000 messages at a time"...
