SBS 2008 mailbox full - where do emails go as no longer on POP


I have a client with an SBS 2008 and accidentally reset the limit below the mailbox size. He received the mailbox full email. I have reset and is getting new mail.

Any idea if failed emails will be save somewhere else?

I can see them is Message Tracking.

I would imagine a bounce back would have been sent to the sender and the email dropped.
See if you can find the bounce being sent to the sender using the tracking.

I can find see there was a bounce back "mailbox full..., but how can I recover this to a mailbox?

Ask sender to send it again.

Unless you have something that stores a copy of the email as it passes through I think you're out of luck.
The server will not keep a copy of a mail for which it has sent a bounce. The mail is considered undeliverable and it has notified the sender of this. The mail will have been discarded.

Yes there was a bounce back and I agree there is no copy that I can find. This question was more "is there a copy available to appease the client". There were only 25 emails so could ask them to send again, but wanted a more professional answer for the client.

I'll take this as closed and should have put journalling on as I believe this would have kept a copy.
