Hi there,
I have SBS 2003 installed on my server. Exchange retreives  mail via the pop-connector. My question is: when my mail is retreived but not distributed to the mailboxes where does it go. I now lost mail from the last couple of days. I is no longer on my server so I'm sure it has been collected.

Can anyone tell me where my mail has gone to?

Kind regards,

There is a failed mail folder that Exchange automatically deposits mail into if it cannot put it in the appropriate mailbox after it has downloaded it using the pop3 connector.

The mail is normally in \Program Files\Microsoft Windows Small Business Server\Networking\Pop3
