Exchange 2010 Stopped Receiving Mail due to Low Disk Space - How do I recover messages?

For the past 20 hours my Exchange server has been unable to receive email (I could send) due to low disk space. I have it working again and email is trickling in. How do I go about making sure I didn't lose any emails during the time it was down?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

It may be to late for that. Some mail servers will retry to send mail to you for 24 to 48 hours. if they do that, your mail may still come in normally. if not, those senders may get an NDR telling them the mail could not be delivered.

I've had that problem before. the best solution is to move Exchange to a drive where there is plenty of free drive space. We have Exchange installed on it's own drive. We have 60 user accounts and the drive is 400 GB with 175 used.

Plan for the future and make your life easier.

Hope this helps!
