If I recall, they should not reappear.  Your Antivirus may be cuasing this.

When you mount the database again you should not see the EML files again. What location did you delete the queue from.

What exactly do you want to do, yes you could them back in the directory and exchange will pick them up. But why? If these are messages for users you want to put them back, if it's spam you don't. Please be a little more specific on what you are planning.

My prob I repaired Exchange DB so I dismounted all DB. While DB is reparing of course the Queue folder continue to fill. Because I started also to have lack of space prob on the drive of Queue folder, I made a copy of EML files and deleted them after.

My question is when I remount the DB they will not recreate those eml files back right? Unmount or remount DB there is no connection with EML files right?

So I should put all EML files back to Queue folder to make sure nobody will lose emails as soon as space disk prob is fixed, am I right?

Thanks

Thanks after reading again your answers that answer my question.

Basically EML files can be moved and replaced in original folder than Exchange will replay them.
