i have a corrupt mailbox store, it mounts ok and works but veritas cannot back it up. Since the store is corrupt with no backup i cant run eseutil to repair. I have created a new store and moved all the mail to the new store. I now have a working database that backs up. I have dismounted the corrupt store. I have noticed that im getting an error about the sytem mailbox. These do not show up as you would expected (like 2003) Anyone know how i can move the system mailboxes or how to display them so i can remove the falty database

    Dismount and remove the corrupt database. Then immediately restart the Information Store service. That will recreate the system mailboxes for you.
