Merging mail boxes on Exchange 2003
Posted on 2007-04-10
I am running Exchange 2003 on Windows Server 2003. We had a crash and rebuild from PST files a couple months ago. Just recently I noticed that a user had an abnormally large email store (16GB). It appears that when he was restored from the pst for some reason his directory tree was restored twice. One normal directory structure and then under the inbox the same directories are repeated. So it looks like this:
The problem is he has been putting email into both directories. Is there anyway to merge A and A without getting copies of the email. Right now I am in the process of copying the sub Inbox directory to the archive so that I can delete the other sub folders to free up the space. But I would like to be able to merge the folders so he does not have any lost data.
Is there any easy way to do this?
