Retrieving email copies from MS Exchange server to sync with notebook
Posted on 2003-11-13
OK, here is what happened. I have a new notebook I configured to access company email using MS Outlook 2002 at home using a VPN to login into office network. All went well. Logged into company network from home. My entire "Inbox" from many months ago started importing to my email client on my notebook. I thought Great!, I now have "copies" all of my emails on my laptop. I get into the office the next morning and open Outlook 2002 on my desktop computer and "Voila!" Only 5 emails that were sent this morning are there in my inbox. Have I lost all of those emails that downloaded to my notebook at home? I need them all back on my office desktop computer.
How can I get all those emails back that are sitting on the company server?
I know that backup copies are sitting on my exchange server but now I do not know how to get all those copies back. I want copies of ALL emails on both machines. I do not want to transfer emails from one machine to another.
What did I do wrong in intial configuration on notebook to cause this to happen? I tried going to "leave mail on server" check box but this is only for POP/IMAP email accounts. I cannot find this setting for MS Exchange servers. In any case how do I go get those emails back.
I am a bit frantic at the moment - thank you in advance in helping me out here.
