backups are good | server side rule (where can I find that)

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
   2. Right-click the Organization Name (Exchange) icon at the top of the tree (where Organization Name is the name that you selected for your Exchange 2003 organization), and then click Properties.
   3. Click Display administrative groups. Optionally, you can also click Display routing groups; however, this setting is not required when you set administrative permissions.
   4. Click OK.
   5. Restart Exchange System Manager, and then confirm that a new object that is named "Administrative Groups" appears in the left pane.
   6. Double-click Administrative Groups, and then double-click the administrative group that you want to add the policy to.
   7. If you do not already have a System Policies folder, right-click the appropriate administrative group, point to New, and then click System Policy Container.

I am guessing so.

what does equal way to recover mean?  Is there way to restore what was deleted?

If not, replaying the logs would entail?
