Recovering ost files for OWA users?

I recently deleted a whole bunch of log files from Exchange, which, of course, screwed me up.  I've since gone through and fixed everything and merged live emails with ost files (from cache mode) and have everybody's email up to snuff here in the office.

The process was: export ost file as pst file in offline mode, go back into connected mode and import the pst file, disable cache mode, disable offline, exit outlook, go back in and reenable cache mode and rename ost file.

This put us back where everything was cool

My only problem now is users on the outside that connect via OWA...how do I get their old emails back?

OWA is pure web based online access to emails. No offlline or cache copy is supported. You may have to go back to your backups.

I'm afraid you're right...

However, I do have the orignal edb file...what about using that?

You can restore the EDB ( Exchange Database ) to get the old data. What version of Exchange do you use. If it is Exchange 2003 then  RSG (Recovery Storage Group) can be used to restore the data and exmerge (An Exchange tool to copy/move data between mailboxes.PST's). With earlier version of Exchange you may have to build an offline exchange recovery server.
