Because of a disater (drive failure) we have had to re build our server.

Having restored our exchange mailstore back from a tape drive we have a major problem.

The mailstore will mount, I can see all users in the list with the size and number of emails that they have.

What I am unable to do is look at the emails. if i open an account via web mail it shows no email and creats a new name in system manager (so have two of same name). The restored mailboxes do not have a red cross by them so if i right click i can not reconnect. Purge is also not avilable.

Please help is there any way to link into these mail boxes or to convert them down to a *.pst file? the mailstire is 20gb in size and over 3 years of mail. we desperatly need the mail back
