Restore of old Exchange 2003 backups after migration to 2010

After successfully migrating to exchange 2010 we're now faced with the task of providing the occasional restore of emails from our old 2003 mailboxes. With our exch 2003 servers on failing hardware, keeping one of them running as a target for the restore is not an option.

So what's our best option for providing this support for the next year as this data ages out? I think just a small vmware exchange server with enough capacity will work but are there better options? I don't want to spend a ton of money on a software solution that we'll use maybe 10 times in the the next year if we're (un)lucky.

Unfortunate that there is no pseudo RSG solution that can be created in 2010.

Thanks in advance.

Don't spend money on 3rd party tool. You can do this easily, just create one new VM image with 4GB RAM. Promote it as DC and then Install Exchange 2003. Later, download legacyexchangedn tool and mimic the Org, and Admin Groups like old one. Restore the DB and mount it back. Use Exmerge and cut it to pst.

Make sure to do this in isolated subnet.
