The problem started last night i believe where the backup (not configured properly) inteferred with one of the mailboxes causing it to lose all mail between 12am and 8am this morning (we didnt even know about this apart from one of the other users being cc'd)
now the issue is i cant restore the messages between this time! i did the registery edit which i believe is the way and even though in the past it worked it no longer shows any messages in there!
i have done message tracking on the mailbox involved and it does say it was delivered to the local store but it cannot be found anywhere!
how else can i restore these messages? is there another way?
