Restore a single user's mailbox.
Posted on 2006-06-20
I had a user that left the company so I deleted his user account and purged his mailbox a week ago. Now we found out that he has some email messages we needed. We have a Exchange running on windows server 2003 standard edition.
The mailbox is not in the mailbox recovery center. I have the windows backup utility scheduled to run every night and create a backup. Is it possible to restore this nightly backup from before the mailbox purge and import the mailbox back into exchange? If so, how would I do that without effectiving the live production environment? I already added the user back into Active Directory too.
