Exchange 2003 OST question - Sync OST back to Exchange 2003

Hi guys,
Is there a way to SYNC OST back to Exchange 2003 Mailbox?  We had a major problem with the SAN over the weekend, it went down.  Unfortunately our Exchange volumes were served on that same SDS and corrupted the exchange databases.  We had to restore and repair some of the databases and a few could not be repaired so we went back to tape and restored from a backup that was 2 months old.  The good thing is that it is only 2 stores that have the data loss of more than 2 months.
What I was thinnking is if there is a way to sync the local OST file on a user's PC back to exchange, this would bascially update the mailboxes that are missing data for those 2 months.  It would probably be a login script of some sort.  Is this possible?  i wanted to see what you guys thought before I call Microsoft.

Thanks,
Kouts1

That's good for one user at a  time.  we need to do this as a login script.  We have hundreds of users experiencing this problem.  Any way to do this with a mapi script or some sort?

thanks for your help.  i called Microsoft and there is no way you can script this because of the profile.  The only way to sync an OST back to Exchange is to use SCANOST.EXE located in the Outlook install directory(C:\program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12).  Running this with defaults will sync your email with exchange.  I tried it and it worked.  Much easier than the link provided above.  Make sure Outlook is closed before you run the app.  Also very important, this only works if you have been running your Outlook in cached mode.


Thanks!
