Coexistence of Exchange 2003 and 2013/2016/2019, 2007 and 2016/2019 or 2010 and 2019 is not possible. However, EdbMails Exchange migration tool simplifies the cross-forest and cross-domain mailbox migrations between on-premises Exchange environments.

  • I've used EdbMails for Exchange Server Recovery, which worked very well for exporting directly from .edb Exchange databases to standalone .pst files. Great for recovery. The team behind this project is very friendly and ready to walk the extra miles to fix any issue you have with installation or extraction. They helped me to retrieve a pst file from a backup EDB without using any exchange server. I was extremely pleased how they handled any small problem and they did not rest until the job was done.
