I have a client who inadvertantly deleted 9GB worth of critical email. I have the appropiate retension set on his 2003 SBS server, and was able to use the recover deleted items feature in Outlook to seemingly find and recover the items, once I made registry modification found here (Closing Mapi session "/o=OrganizationName/ou=AdministrativeGroupName/cn=Recipients/cn=UserName" because it exceeded the maximum of 500 objects of type "objtFolder".
). The process took awhile as well, and his mailbox size now shows 9,623,727 and 43K plus items. (I know he needs an archiving solution). Problem is, even though the store shows his mailbox that large, only a few of the items have reappeared, like only 400, and those appeared under the deleted items folder as subfolders with the annotation "recovered". It's been quite a few hours since I did this (like 8) and nothing else seems to be appearing. Am I missing something?
