Stellar Converter for EDB review – Best E-mail Conversion Tool
Stellar Converter for EDB is one of the best e-mail conversion tools that can efficiently and quickly convert Microsoft Exchange Database (EDB) files into Outlook PST files.
It can convert offline or hosted (online) EDB files and also extract mailboxes without the need to dismount the database. Converted data can be previewed and then saved in various formats like PST, MSG, EML, RTF, PDF, and HTML formats for Online & Offline Exchange databases.
Aside from being able to export single or multiple mailboxes, this converter supports parallel processing which results in faster conversion. The software can export up to 4 mailboxes simultaneously to PST, Live Exchange, or Office 365 without impacting the server performance.
It also allows you to prioritize mailbox conversion, which helps export critical mailboxes first than others. All exported mailboxes include e-mails, contacts, calendars, attachments, notes, tasks, and even journals.
The software auto-maps the source and destination mailboxes when you export the converted mailboxes to Live Exchange or Office 365. Users can also create a new mailbox directly from the software interface on the destination server while exporting the mailboxes to Live Exchange. The option helps when you need to map a missing mailbox on the destination server.
Stellar Converter for EDB is powerful enough to migrate large EDB files to PST’s without file size limitation and also export offline EDB files and Public folders to Live Exchange or Office 365.
Also, it supports UNICODE files and thus, can convert EDB files of any language to PST format. Besides, you can also save the converted mailbox database’s scan information in .DAT format. This allows you to resume the conversion of mailboxes at a later stage and without rescanning the EDB files again. The option comes in handy when you need to convert large EDB files.
The filter options available in the software allow you to quickly find, preview and export specific emails from the converted mailboxes. Further, you may apply filters to include or exclude emails based on date range or email address while exporting the mailboxes to PST, Live Exchange, or Office 365.
Additionally, you may use the right-click to save individual mail items to PDF, EML, MSG, HTML, and RTF formats.
