Is there a tool that can extract the messages from a .pst file so that the messages can be processed individually?


Microsoft offers the Microsoft Exchange Mailbox Merge Program (ExMerge) that is generally used for restoring mailbox stores from one server to another. However, it can also be used in other ways, including the ability to remove selected e-mail messages from the source mailboxes.

This program can be downloaded from Microsoft.
