I have large pst files which I need to split into smaller pst files. Is this something that can be done? Where the split pst files remain usable in outlook.
This MS KB Article has steps to do so in Outlook 2007 method 3 Your best bet would be to transfer your file to a computer that has 2007 and use one of these methods. This will allow you to work on a backup copy as well as you won't have to buy a third-party application to do it. Regardless, always work on a backup

Mentioned (by @Raystafaian) methods are not flexible and way too complex than using free Split Storage utility. All you need is to specify source storage (your connected PST), destination folder for resulting PST files and desired PST file size. You can also split your PST files by years using this tool.
I recommend this freeware product because I'm one of its developers and this way actually splits PSTs automatically without need to manually copy items.
