So what kind of email server you want to use in your new domain.

If you want to continue using Exchange, you can migrate from old ones to new ones (move mailboxes), use link
http://www.computerperformance.co.uk/exchange2003/exchange_2003_move_mailbox.htm#How%20to%20move%20mailboxes

If you do not want to continue using Exchange, there two way to accoplish this task

1./ If you have catchall account (archive all) deloy new mail server, pop or imap sync mail
2./ Use one of these tools to recover mailbox from .edb file

1. It seems there's no freeware tool to convert edb to pst at the moment

2. If your old server can go online, you can use Microsoft Exchange Server Mailbox Merge Wizard  to recover your mailbox

We can build a recovery environment and Install Exchange 2003 with the most recent Service Pack.
We now would have to run a command on the .edb file to get the Old Orgnization and AG name in case you do not remember.
find /i "ou-" (location of the .edb file) and then stop the command prompt after few second once its initated.
Once everything is up we can dismount the Current store and remove the files and get the ones we have from the old server and before mounting we have to go to the properties of the Database and check the box "This Database can be overwritten by a Restore".
