Hello, I have just lived through the following scenario.
1.  During server maintenance our domain controller/exchange server crashed due to both drives on the RAID 1 failing during reboot.  The exchange databases were stored in a seperate logical drive RAID 5 which is still in tact.  I also have a Backup-Exec 12.5 backup available on tape but I understand that is not useful without the system state information from the old installation.
2.  I now have a fresh install of Windows 2003 and Exchange server 2003.  I have re-created all user accounts in Active Directory and added Exchange email accounts for them.

The qustion is, How can I get the data from the old exchange information store into the new information store without the Active Directory information from the crashed installation?

I use, and highly recommend Kernel EDB: http://www.kerneldatarecovery.com/buy-edb-email-recovery.html

It's cheap and does the job well, it will export all your mail to PST's which can then be re-inported.
