Hi Experts, I am trying to restore a single email however it should be in a bkf file that I did a while back. The Exchange server is no longer there since we use 2010 now. When I open the bkf file I get the picture below. I cannot select any of the folders to restore

To be able to restore Exchange 2003 backups, you will need an Exchange 2003 server as a target for the database as documented in the Exchange 2003 disaster recovery guide.

 Another option is to use a third party tool such as Ontrack PowerControls Extract Wizard.

Check my profile for a tool that can open the BKF, extract and open the EDB so you can extract what you want.

I think some points should be allocated, given that the responses led the author to some third party tools.
