I have been using an MS Mail for internal mail and I seem to have lost the name and password of the original creator and I get:

A Workgroup Postoffice can be managed only by the user who created it

When I enter what I think is the correct User name and password. Is there a way of finding the user name and password of the original creator of the post office so that I can start administering it again?

Thanks for the advice steveb 49. However, my machin doesn't have a MMF file to break the password from using the lostpassword program.

Could I simply delete the whole lot and re-create it from scratch and then re-link evfery one to it?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Providing no-one has any info they want to keep it's probably the easiest thing to do. Sorry it's taken so long for the reply but i've been away for the weekend.

I was wondering if anyone found an actual solution other than starting from scratch. In the same boat, no MMF to be found and dont want to start over yet. Any other ideas
Thanks, Ernie
