POP3 connection manager, missing emails after editing recipient policies
Posted on 2006-05-01
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.
