With Exchange 2007 install the exchange management console and powershell on a 32bit machine with outlook installed on it. This will export the mailbox to a pst file with out having to load it in outlook.  You will need to enable the account prior to this then you can disable them when your done.  Open powershell and run this command
export-mailbox -identity domain/username -pstfolderpath folderPathforthefiletobestored
