I am finishing an SBS 2003 installation for someone. I just got Exchange running and switched all users from their POP3 accounts. They have 2 general mailboxes that they want everyone to have access to.
I have setup 2 distribution groups in SBS 2003 (using the wizards) for these 2 mailboxes and have configured the maill to go to 2 public folders. THE FOLDERS KEEP VANISHING! Sometimes within 5 minutes of creation and sometimes after a whole day.
I noticed that Exchange was running SP1 so I installed SP2...folders are stilll vanishing.
I originally had the mail only going to the public folder....no recipients. I thought maybe that was the problem. So I added the admin mailbox as a recipient but that did not help. One of the folders vanished today with over 100 emails in it.
I see nothing, event log or otherwise, to indicate why this is happening.
Can anyone help me figure out what is going on? Is there any way to retieve all those messages that disappeared today?
