Exchange email problem
Posted on 2006-10-22
using Exchange 2003. I reinstalled XP on a couple of PC's and created a new Exchange account on the first one and all the users messages, calendar, etc. were there as I expected.
On the second PC, the messages were three months old, dating to the point that another user had left the company. Looked like the account maybe was renamed or something. Three months of messages were missing. Backup Exec restore by Resource indicated the mailbox name as Joe Smith (kevin), where kevin was the previous user of this PC. I'm confused.
My question is if the messages were coming into the exchange server, why were they not being stored in the user mailbox? Were they in a local PST file that was wiped on the reinstall?
Thanks to anyone willing to help me with this.
