What is mailbox size? Export to PST is one solution, however large PST can get corrupt easily. Keep PST size under 2 GB, if mailbox size is above 2 GB, split it into multiple PST files. Remember Outlook creates PST in UNICODE format.

I know 2GB is not applicable, With Outlook 2010 it support upto 50GB, however, chances of large PST corruptions are very high and it is recommends to split it into multiple PST's rather having one large PST.
