while searching for answers to my never ending issue with this error below, I opened up ANSIEdit, went to the Configuration container, then under the Exchange container/LostandFoundConfig, Ithere are 7 sub-containers in the right hand pane.  I'm sure this is from when my server crashed awhile ago and I reinstalled the OS and Exchange.....Is it safe to delete everything in the LostandFoundConfig container, and  do you think it might resolve this error:

The MAPI call 'OpenMsgStore' failed with the following error:
The information store could not be opened.
The logon to the Microsoft Exchange Server computer failed.
MAPI 1.0
ID no: 80040111-0286-00000000

Microsoft says to look for any "orpahned Display-Templates" in LostandFoundConfig, but there's nothing with that name.  There ARE however "Addresses", "Global Address List", etc...Can I delete all this stuff?  If anyone has any other suggestions on why the OAL isn't being created and I'm getting the above error, I sure wouls appreciate it!  Thanks.

Hey there, it's me again.  I think we're on to a fix with the legacyExchangeDN issue.  We just need to get you to edit that.

The lost and found container is managed by the system, which is why I suggested you leave it be.  AD will deal with it in time.  I think it's 60 days, but I can't remember.  An example of what might put an object there is that a container is deleted on one server while an object is created in that container on another server before replication completes.  That object is now orphaned and has no disposition so it is "lost and found".

I hope that helps.

Are you clear on the lost and found purpose?  I don't want to leave you hanging.  :)

Not really...From what I understand, they're not really being "used" but are not safe to delete......It's been over 2 months since the rebuild and they're still there.  I just wat everything to be "clean".

Well, you can certainly get rid of them, but the system should take care of it.  They reprsent homeless object that you arent using anyway so it's not like it's going to hurt to remove them.  :)  Personally, I'd leave them be, but I understand the need for cleanliness.
