Uninstall Exchange Server (it's broken - you cannot have Exchange on a non-Domain based server (Exchange REQUIRES Active Directory) and you cannot promote or demote an Exchange server to/from being a DC.  Get rid of it and see what happens with the logon times (also make sure you DNS settings are correct - and if you're not sure what I mean by this, ask).

Disable all Exchange related servies. This will fix the issue for you if you don't want to uninstall exchange.

The server was on domain several weeks ago. That domain was broken and build up again with the same domain name. I just wanted to recover the mailboxes from the server.
How can I recover the Exchange ? All files are on the server and accessible.

If you have your active directory intact, you can rebuild the exchange server.

The Active directory was rebuild with same name and same users but the SID are probably not the same.
