I have an Exchange 2003 server problem. We can't seem to send or receive any emails.
We can open outlook and connect to the server. Status bar says online on bottom right of screen.
I get the following error:
task 'Microsoft Exchange Server' reported error (0x80040107): 'Could not open the item. Try again.'

This is how it all started. Last week the primary DC crash.
On the second DC, I seized all the FSMO roles so that it becomes the main DC.

On exchange, I ran setup /disasterrecovery.
Rebooted and mounted the mailboxes. No problem so far.

When I use a client to send any email, It comes up with the above error.

I was thinking if I could run forestprep and domain prep on the same exchange server so that it can reconnect to the secondary DC.
I'm not sure if this would solve the situation

Will I lose any exchange info If I do this.

Please advise
