Recover Deleted Emails Outlook 2010 and Exchange 2010
Posted on 2013-01-08
Have a user that resigned, but last day is not for another week. CEO asked me to keep a close watch on her email because of her status in the company.
8500 emails have been deleted (from deleted folder and other folders), I assigned myself full permission to her mailbox and through OWA I started recovering email, by right clicking deleted folder and selecting Recover Deleted Email and placing them into a Public Archived Email folder. The bad part is I have to select each email individually...so this was taking to long
I opened Outlook, and her account is there, but I am unable to recover deleted email (by right clicking deleted folder - option is not there and going to Folder - Recover Deleted Email - option IS there but is grayed out and unclickable.)
Lastly, she just went to lunch, she left her computer logged in and I jumped on went to Folder>Recover Deleted Email (does not give me an option to put it in the Public folder like OWA does) I started recovering and noticed it was putting it back into Inbox, Deleted and whatever else folders, so stopped that because I didn't want to dig around and spend all that time)
Is there a fast way to Recover ALL Deleted email and put it in a Paticular folder, maybe through PowerShell, a script, through Exchange 2010...anything, seems to be a little clunky.
Thanks in advance.
