    Export Exchange Server all Emails into .eml format & use into Thunderbird Email Client but what if the Exchange database file (.edb) is corrupted or offline

    If you have offline/corrupted EDB file and  wants to convert offline EDB file emails in Thunderbird application then choose Exchange recovery software its helps to recover emails from offline EDB file and gives option to convert Exchange Server emails into EML file format. After conversion you can easily drag and drop converted EML file in Thunderbird emails client.
