Exporting emails in Exchange from Small Business Server 2003

A questions from a SearchExchange.com user My friend has a Small Business Server 2003 machine. He was using this machine in his company for several years, and he was using exchange for his email server. The machine had plenty of HD space and he had a fairly small company, so there was no reason to archive emails and remove them from the database that was active. (He had retrospect as his backup utility so yes we knew he was in no danger of losing his data). He has since shut the company and he had the server off line for quite a few months now. He has a recent reason to need to retrieve the email from the server database. How can we export the email from his or several accounts in the exchange database into a format (I am assuming ".pst") so that he can import it into his outlook program. When he looks at outlook currently on his old (non-server) machine, he sees only the latest emails, but we know (are pretty sure) that he has all the emails inside the database. Can you assist me in getting those emails exported from his server? We do have all the accounts and passwords that should be needed for anything that would be necessary. Thank you in advance for your consideration.
