Retreiving Exchange mail contacts
Posted on 2014-01-19
I have finally convinced a client to move to cloud mail (Zimbra) and they are loving the move! They were previously running exchange on an old 2003 SBS server which is still onsite, but being wound down as a new 2012 server is wound up.
For the local users, I was able to log them onto the 2003 server's domain, have Exchange auto-configure, export contacts/ etc and the import into their setup - done... easy.
The tricky part is that there are three users who are interstate and used to connect to the 2003 server via VPN (I don't know VPN's but I'm sure it was a simple one as they were using Windows RDP to connect).
Since the mail clicked over, they can no longer access the server and, subsequently, their old contacts.
So, my Qs:
1a/ Where would their contacts reside- on their PC, as if they were using exchange mail on a local profile, or would they be somewhere else because they are using a VPN to connect?
1b/ If the contacts are stored somewhere else, where would they be? I know you'd get everything in a PST (or OST), but finding it seems to be the current challenge.
Hope you can help - urgency is increasing...
