Hi everyone,

I deleted a while a mailbox which is not available anymore in the disconnected mailboxes.
The AD account is deleted too.

I'd like to recover the mailbox into a pst file if possible.

I have some backups of the exchange database, but i don't want to use them to get that mailbox.

Any idea ?

If its a disconnected mailbox - create a user called "restore" connect that user to the disconnected mailbox - log on as that user then expoer the mailbox to pstas per http://www.petenetlive.com/KB/Article/0000154.htmPetewww.petenetlive.com

The mailbox is not a disconnected mailbox. The suppression date is pretty old.

if the mailbox is no longer listed as a disconnected mailbox the only option is to use the recovery storage group to restore the database and get the mailbox content

If as you say the AD account is gone and its been some time since the AD and MB was deleted then I don't think that RSG is going to help you since it needs the AD account to reference the MB inside the EDB.  
  1. Another option is to take a look at Lucid8's DigiScope http://www.lucid8.com/product/digiscope.asp because it doesn't require The AD record, i.e. it just opens the EDB and lets you Browse, Search, Export and Recover any Mailbox, Folder or Individual items desired.
    • You can get  a 30-Day Demo license so that you can open the EDB, walk through it etc to see if the mailbox in question is available and then if desired license the product for extraction
  2. From your description is sounds like
    • You will need to pull this from a backup just prior to the deletion date since its more than likely been purged from the current EDB.    
    • Although I suppose you could take an offline copy of the current EDB to see if its still there but again from your description sounds like its been purged completely

Hi,

Search the *.ost file from the user desktop, and remove network connection and try to login to offline mode and you can see offline mails, from there create a new pst and move the mails
