Conversion of the entire database to another format isn’t always needed. Depending upon requirements, you may need to convert only a single or a handful of emails within the EDB to PST format. While exporting the entire Exchange server mailbox database to PST format is relatively straightforward, doing so for a few emails and that too those that are specifically selected by the user is slightly complex. Most converters don’t offer this feature, however, with Stellar Mailbox Extractor; you have no reason to worry.
As thousands of emails, calendar entries, notes etc, pile up within user mailboxes, warnings about approaching file size limitation are thrown. To avoid the consequences of exceeding database file size (corruption) or to avoid receiving warnings, users go on a mailbox cleaning frenzy to free up space. At such times, users may delete important emails unintentionally. Stellar Mailbox Extractor can help you tackle such an unprecedented loss by extracting all accidentally deleted emails.

All mailbox items within EDB like emails, Contacts, Calendar entries, Journal etc can be quickly extracted and accurately converted into corresponding PST files with this mailbox extractor. What’s more, Exchange mailbox extraction tool performs the conversion process without altering the original format of the mailbox items.
