We currently use Exchange 2003 within our domain.
I was recently asked to recover a mailbox of a user that left the company over two years ago.
Fortunately i still had the relevent backup tapes and was able to restore the store to the Recovery Storage Group.
Normally i would now click on the mailbox required within the recovery storage group and use Exchange tasks to move the mailbox.
However, this is not possible in this instance as the Active Directory account for this particular user was deleted a couple of years ago.
How can i get access to the restored mailbox in the recovery storage group when the user account no longer exists in AD ?
Exporting the mailbox to a pst would be sufficient.
