My store won't mount so I've exported all users mails out and want to create a new mailbox store and link active directory users to the new store, how do I do this without creating new users in active directory and just within Exchange server 2007?

You don't want to create a new database, just follow the advice "If there are any files that correspond to the MDB2 database, move them to a temporary location", then mount the existing database which should realise that the database has gone and mount a clean empty database in it's place.

That's fine - it is just Exchange 2007 on Windows 2008.

You are welcome.  I would delete the other question with a link to this one as the solution.

The title of the other question didn't stand out to me as being urgent or something I would have looked at, so I probably just deleted the alert email.  Sorry.  If you can be a bit more descriptive in the question title for any future questions in Exchange then I am more inclined to take a look :)

Anyway - glad it is solved and hope it plays nicely from now on.

Best wishes

Alan
