How to recover all historical mail boxes from a reinstalled server with no system state backup, MDBDATA files appear to be fine. This was SBS so AD is being rebuilt on a separate server.

Let me start this by saying all we want is the historical emails in the exchange info store. Getting them in .pst will be fine.

I have a customer that had Microsoft Small business 2003, and they were using the Exchange piece. So AD, Exchange and SQL were all running on the same server. The server has crashed, we did a parallel install with "2003 standard edition". We are building a new domain controller on a separate server. So the domain will be up shortly. We have migrated all 6 users to GOOGLE APPS, so they are sending and receiving email. We will be installing Exchange on the 2003 member server once the domain is up. We plan on staying with GOOGLE APPS even after all this is through.

- At this point we have no AD domain, we will be recreating it.

- We still have the option of naming the server the exact same name as before if we need to.

With SQL server if you have this kind of failure, you can just re-install SQL and attach the data and log files&so&my question is how can I recover all the user mailboxes once the new Exchange server is installed?

Re-installing SBS is not an option, we don't have the CDs.

If you just want to export the raw data to PSTs use PowerControls by Ontrack.

You could also use a RSG once the new server is up:
