 Last night my exchange server stop receiving emails. Was still able to send but was not able to receive. Everything looked like it was ok. I ended up restarting my server, when the server came back on line, everything started to work fine.
   Then I noticed that email that were sent and received up to one hour before the problem started, had dissappeared. there was not record of them at all. I looked at my transaction logs, found one with a time just before my problemed started. What i am trying to do it just restore that transcation log.  Is there a way to do that, with out lossing any other data?

I am using a windows 2003 server with exchange 2003.

"What i am trying to do it just restore that transcation log. "
You cannot restore just one log. It is all or none.

What exactly do you mean by:
"I noticed that email that were sent and received up to one hour before the problem started, had dissappeared."

How did you determine this?
Was this determined by looking in the queues?

The mail dissapearing was detemine by of  the users had sent email to a  few specific user and got response back.  but after I restarted the server none of the emails where there, not even th eone she sent out.


But if it is a all or none restore..then I got my answer. Unless you know away i might beable to recover those lost emails.
