Not easily.
If you can rebuild the replacement domain with identical names to the others you might be able to mount the database to extract the content in to another database. It isn't something I have done with Exchange 2013 yet. If this is a live production system though I would suggest speaking to Microsoft.

You need to take care of few things

1. Exchange Org Name should be same as earlier
2. Exchange should be same or higher version

After many unsuccessful tries to work directly form the .edb file, I purchased a tool to convert .edb to .pst
Thanks all for advices
