I have an old exch 2007 server that we need to keep the emails for at least 3-4 years. We migrated the users from this server over to another exch 2007 server. So all is there now is the disconnected emails for all users.
My question is, if I backup the edb files from the old server, would I be able to mount that again at some point if I had to build another exch 2007 server to get a particular users email from it or since I migrated the users email over to another exchange server, would the old edb files not be any good now from the old server?
