Have a user with about a years worth of emails in her inbox (the past year), but her MBX file is over 7 GB and I know the emails she has can't possibly add up to this large.  I'm thinking that perhaps there's a corruption problem because the mailbox splitter utility will error saying it can't open the MBX file as soon as it creates the first -01 file.  Any ideas on how to determine exactly what's going on here?

In the utilities pack there is a Mailbox Reporter utility that might shed some light on this. I do not know if it is capable of opening a mailbox that large though.
