Exchange2003 for SBS. User deleted a contact list. It's not in the Deleted Items folder. This is a laptop and the deletion was done while it was not connected to the domain. User brought it in this morning and since we use Exchange in cached mode before I connected to the domain, I unchecked "cached mode" and then logged into the domain. The deleted list is not on the server. Where did it go and can it be recovered?

Not using cache mode, but is the user connect to exchange using RPC over https? Try to log on via OWA and see if the list is there. If not I am afraid you need to go back to your backup.

Ormerodrutter,
User was in OWA when he deleted the list. He brought it back to the office and plugged into domain. LIst still not there. Guess you are correct about the backup.

You said "This is a laptop and the deletion was done while it was not connected to the domain". I thought you meant user deleted the list in his Outlook while offline.

If he deletes that in OWA then the only option you have is get it back from the backup.
