Client had their email set up with Google Apps and was accessing with IMAP. At some point later they started pulling it all down with POP3.
Last weekend we installed an SBS2011 server with Exchange 2010 and used the import command to bring the mail in. What I find now is that each inbox has a number of subordinate folders of type IMAP.
*** If the user drags a new email from the Inbox into one of these type IMAP folders, the email vanishes. *** I created a new folder which is not type IMAP and dragging into those is no problem.
I exported one of these type IMAP folders to a separate PST and I can see that the folder is still type IMAP. Also, the vanished messages have not reappeared.
So... is there a way to re-type these folders from IMAP to normal? The alternative will be to manually recreate the folder structure for every mailbox which is NOT a task I care to do. Can the messages from today that have vanished in the dragging, be recovered?
