Hello,

Any employee at my company sent me an email saying

"While testing Prophet 2004, I used the Group EMAIL function – it created 800+ messages which now reside on the server in my drafts folder.  I cannot delete them and for some reason the server is not sending them out (I cannot move them to the OUTBOX and cannot DELETE).  Could you please get on the server and delete them (call me first so I am logged out when you do it)."

We use an outlook add-in called Prophet.

How would we view the draft folder on the exchange server 5.5?

Thanks for your help.

Chris B

I would use Exmerge to export all of the data and exclude the drafts folder ... then blow out the mailbox and recreate it with the same properties (SMTP address etc...)
