I have a corrupted IS in Exch 2003. Exported all mailboxes to .pst with exmerge.exe.  How do I delete the current IS, create a new one, and import the .pst files back into store?

Stop the Information Store service.
Move the PRIV1.EDB and PRIV1.STM to another location.
Start the Information Store service.
Mount the mailbox store.
Use EXMERGE to put the data back in the mailboxes.
Use the 2 step process, step 2.

So far so good.  I have completed the steps successfully and tested sending/rec'ving mail.  I am only awaiting the result of my backup job tonight.  I know this is not a difficult question but I was desperate for time and didn't want to search KBs all night.  Thanks.
