Access or Export old Exchange Server emails

I have an Exchange Server (2007) which is no longer in use, but I would like to access some emails which are stored in its database, and then export them to .pst or to a running Exchange Server (2007).

Is that possible? If yes, how?

Check this one:

Get-Mailbox -Database <DB_Name> | Export-Mailbox  -PSTFolderPath <Path_Of_PST_Folder>\<File_Name>.pst

I cannot run this command because the machine is not a domain controller any longer, has been demoted.

Is there any software that can assist with extracting mail from edb file direct?
Run Get-MailboxDatabase | fl

In order to do the pst export on 2007 you will need to install the management console on a 32 bit system and have outlook installed there as well.

You can manipulate an offline exchange database using the commands above. You need a 3rd party tool to do this. I found the couple below, but I have not used them so cannot comment on the useability.


If the old exchange server is part of the same domain, you can try mounting the database on your current exchange 2007 servers.

Isn't it the same software I linked in my post? Why post a question if you don't bother reading the answers.
