If im not mistaking, and i might be wrong, but the issue at hand is that his Clients cannot connect to the exchange servers. regardless of what software was used or how the restore was done.

also keep in mind that if it is the procedure of how the restore was done, we would require a time stamp of when the last image was created of the Exchange server 2003/2007

Syru, I ask how it was done because I know of companies who's recovery options include some very odd procedure's.

some of these can affect services such as exchange

Hello
I start on friday a migration from sbs2003 server to new box with sbs2008 and this failed. Before I start, I made an image backup of the whole server with acronis of the sbs2003. After the disaster with the migration I had to go back to the original state of the server 2003 for business continuitation purposes. Now all other applications runs without problems-why not. The only problem ist, that all outlook clients have lost their connection to the exchange app. I tried to repair the connection from the client side but the server cannot be connected.
sysru: when I recreate a users profile I have to delete the old one and loss all emails from sunday till now-is that correct?
regards
Heinz

Hweilaender,

no, you can create a secondary profile by using the control panel>mail>show profiles>add

then create the user mail profile with the new name that you specified (do not delete the old profile)

ManicD - my apologies if my message came accross aggressive

Hweilaender, this has to be done on the client side

Hi Sorry for the late reply,

Alright, i havent been working with 2003 for a couple of years now, but if my memory serves me right,
Go to tools>account settings>select the email account and disable "offline cache" close outlook, and rename the user ost under c:\documents and setting\<user>\local settings\application data\microsoft\outlook\outlook.ost - after this has been done, re open outlook, wait for the mailbox to show "online" then re enable offline cache again, this should solve your issue.
