How do I access exchange 2007 information store directly for email retrieval ?

We have an exchange 2007 that was in use a few years ago but was eventually decommissioned. When we decommissioned the server we uninstalled exchange from the server (VM)  and domain but kept the VM of exchange and a prior to removing exchange snapshot. Now several years later we have a sopena for emails from 2007-2008 which is likely stored within this servers information store. I need to see what emails are stored here, but I cannot simply login to the server via owa because all the AD components of exchange have been removed and I don’t believe it would be a good idea to let this server interact with a production PDC. Any help, advice or suggestions on accessing the information store would be appreciated.

if you still have the databases you could mount them and pull the emails you need
