I need a quick and accurate answer. I’m running MS Exchange 2003. One of my more important users had an issue recently with his AD account, it was removed. I recreated it, but there was an issue with his mailboxes. I didn’t handle it correctly, but I know better now. I removed his old mailboxes from Exchange, and created a new one. Now he get this message every time he logs in “ Exchange is currently in recover mode. You can connect to your exchange server using the network, work offline, or cancel this login.
He was running in cached mode with his mail in a PST file, and given the options above he can see all his old mail, as well as his new server mail, but he has to keep logging in and out.
I need to resolve this fairly quickly… I have read the 2 posts on the site already, but find they aren’t that clear. It is important that I do not loose his mail during this process. Please assist.
