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.
