Retrieving Emails from Exchange 2003 Server
Posted on 2012-03-10
I've just done a P2V virtualisation of a 2003 SBS server and forgot to stop Exchange 2003. Therefore the new virtualised server does not have emails received during the migration process, missing about 18 hours worth of emails which are obviously on the old server.
Because they both have the same domain name etc, I have the old server sat running on a different IP subnet so I can still access it for emergencies until we're sure everything is off it. The only issue are these emails. There are only about 200 emails which were received during this window and delivered to the local mailboxes on the old server.
I'm trying to find a way of retireving these emails. I can see a list of them in the Message Tracker, most of them are spam but there are a handful I need to get.
My current solution would be to use OWA to login to the individual mailboxes and then just take screenshots or copy and paste the emails but it will be a very long process and wondered if there was an easier way?
