I have a set of Exchange 2000 logs, but no mailbox store. Is it possible to 'build' mailbox store from these logs? (And if possible then how?)

From article - 12. Restore the database files from backup. I do not have mailstore database, just the logs. Will it still work?

Rakeshmiglani has the correct answer here.
But as the article states, you must have ALL the log files from day 1. Notice the key word in the last statement: ALL

You have EVERY database logfile that has ever been created on this Exchange server?
E0000001.log and ALL subsequent logs?

You cannot be missing any, especially the E0000001.log.
