Our server crashed on Friday and we had to purchase and configure a new server with windows 2003 server standard.  Previous company had no raid or backups to work with.  We were however able to slave the old hdd and have access to all folders including exchsvr, subfolders and files.  My question is:  what is the easiest way to get the exchange on our new server up with our old mbdata and exchsvr data.  Our new server has win2k3, exchange 2003 and we did have AD on our 2nd domain controller, new server is promoted and has all old accounts and permissions in place.   Is there a way to import our data from the old exchange server folder onto the exchange on the new server?  Any info, help or ideas is greatly appreciated.

The information was helpful, unfortuantely all our exchnage data and mbdata was corrupted.  On the bright side we had all outlook clients using cached exchange mode so wo imported the .pst files from each int their new mailboxes.
