Is there a tool that will allow for me to receover a couple of mailboxes from an edb file? The mailboxes were recreated on a different server due to a major server issue.  However have the edb that is healthy.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I would highly recommend using Kernel Data Recovery for Exchange Server. I just did a test trial and it is great software. Completely isolated from Exchange and you can restore to PST or back into your Exchange environment.

Compatible with all versions of Exchange.
