POP3 connection manager, missing emails after editing recipient policies

I am using ExchangeSBS 2003 and have 3 mailboxes that are pulling mail through the POP3 connection manager domain1, domain2 domain3.com .  While troubleshooting another problem I removed the outside domain names for these addresses from the recipient policies/default policy.  The messages from domains continued to download, but did not route to the mailboxes, resulting in a 1070 error.  I know this because I checked domain1.com's inbox on the original server, the box is empty and it gets lots of mail.

Where did the messages go?  When the messages could not be delivered because of the recipient policy problems, which resulted in a 1070 error in the event log, did the message get deleted or move to some Bad Mail folder on the server?

I need these messages back, so any suggestions on how to locate them or restore is greatly apreciated.

Event 1070 is logged and e-mail messages are not delivered with the SBS 2003 Connector for POP3 Mailboxes.

The Microsoft Exchange 2003 Server-based computer removes the e-mail messages that it was not able to deliver.

Not the answer I wanted to hear.  ;-(

The outside domains we are downloading from are using Exchange.  Do you know if it is possible for them to re-load the messages back into the inboxes for a specific date range so we can download them again? Possible from the Deleted Items folder?  Or are the messages deleted from the servers once the POP3 connector pulls them.

Messages can only be downloaded again when you have configures the outlook to leave a copy of message on Server.

Path to that is Go to properties of outlook and then Email accounts ...Add a new mail account....POP3....User info and Server Info (from where u are downloading the messages)...Click on More Settings....Internet Email setings then Advanced....in Delivery option select Leave a copy of messages on Server. Now if this option is selected then only you will be able to download messages again otherwise you will not be able to download again.
