one of the users deleted his emails of the last 5 months. The backup copy is corrupted of course. I guess the answer will be no way, but there is a way to recover the emails with the exchange logs or something like that?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Is the server configured to retain deleted items?

If so, enable the dumpster option within outlook (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/246153/en-us), and then use the outlook "Recover deleted items" option in the folder where the mails were.

1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).
2. Locate and click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\Options
3. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
Value name: DumpsterAlwaysOn
Data type: DWORD
Value data: 1  
4. Quit Registry Editor.
You can use an administrator's computer or a user's computer to make this change to the registry. After you change the registry, start Outlook, and then click Deleted Item Recovery on the Tools menu. A list of items that have been hard deleted during the retention time set on the server is displayed.


I did this and now I have avaible the recover deleted items, but when I click on it nothing happens.

IMAP service is not able to start at the server, when everythings goes wrong it goes wrong :)
