I'm a little new to mail management so you patience is appreciated....

I have Ex 2003  loaded for a year ran ok.  Setup a "replication" server for backup and mail stopped.   After some reseach I think it had something to do with the badmail folder (37K files) on the first server.

Took the second server offline, and things seem to be working again.....

Current questions:

1.  How can I find those lost emails?   Are they in the badmail?  Message tracking was off?   On now
2.  The build versions were different between the Exc Servers.   I'd like to move to the current version but can't seem to get the older version to do an upgrade from the CD.   Suggestions on how'd u do this?
3.  What is the badmail folder?  How can I read the email in there?
      What is the difference between .bdp   and .bad files?
4.  When looking in the Ex Sys Mgr and I see the users listed, where are the "items" it says the user has?   Are these actually saved?  Can they be read?
