I have restored all databases from one STG in Exchange 2003. What I realized, there is no "System Attendant" and "SystemMailbox{GUID}" in all MailboxStores.

Even after creating a new MailboxStore in the same STG there are no "System Attendant" and "SystemMailbox{GUID}", just SMTP{GUID} is created. What should I do to fixe it?

I'm not sure but does "System Attendant" should also be there?

Yes, there should be a System Attendant mailbox. By default, the System Attendant mailbox is created in the first mailbox store in the first storage group on the first Exchange Server computer. Do you have more than one mailbox store and/or Exchange server?
