Delete Public folder emails after the folder was delete it
Posted on 2008-01-26
I have an sigle exchange 2007 server in a single domain.
I think I had a corrupted public folder database since I was not able as administrator to create any public folder from outlook. On the old database I create a folder call service-request and I mail enable so it had an email call firstname.lastname@example.org. I was not able to send any email to that adress so I come to the conclusion that I have to delete the public folder database and recreate. So i stop all teh exchange services and delete the public folder database file and then restart the services. The reason i did it this way was because when I try to delete it from Exchange console it keep complaining about the Offline Adress book that is map to this public fodler. So after I restart the service I go the mailbox public folder database and it say that the file can't be find and it ask me if I want to create a new Public fodler database. I said yes and now I can create any folder that i want without any problem. It look that my original problem is solved but after I create the folder call service-request , Exchange it assign the emaill email@example.com and that's because the original email adress from the old folder on teh old database still exist. The question is "where"? I look in the users mailbox but there is only users not public folders adress. I need to delete the original one so I can rename the new one. I apreciate your help
