I have a customer with a 2003 exchange EDB, they would like to try to convert it to a 2013 file and open it in their exchange 2013 server.

How would I begin down a path of doing this?

I am actually in the process of preparing for this myself.  You will need to first upgrade to 2010 exchange from 2003.  You could do 2007 but I recommend 2010.  You will also need to be aware that 2003 outlook will not work PERIOD with 2013 exchange.  I can provide some in-depth steps once I get home as I have a write-up from start to finish i have been working on for my blog.
