Changed the Mail Client

My customer changed from Outlook to Apple Mail and moved the Mail Files - now the Outlook database is empty
it worked with Exchange 2013 - My Question - is there a way to get the mails back in Outlook ?
Exchange saves the files for 30 days - I think and hope !
Thanks for information

You can export e-mails from Apple mail as .mbox then you may need to either buy a tool which converts .mbox to .pst or you can download available some free tools online.

One tool is suggested by Apple itself: http://www.mboxtopstconverter.pcrecoverytools.com/

yes you can restore it from Exchange as well, just configure same account with Outlook and see what mails are there. Then go to Folder menu in ribbon then click on "Recover Deleted Items"

You will be able to see deleted e-mails select them and restore, but these are limited to retention which has been configured on Exchange Database.

rest if you take regular backups then try to restore exchange backup. let me know if you need any guide on it.

Please note that the problem might return if Apple Mail is configured in POP3 AND delete mode. Everytime you restore the mailbox, the Mail client wil pop3/retrieve the email followed by a delete command, and you're back to square one.
