Activesync Prioritiy

I am currently restoring a Server 2008 R2 that has Exchange 2010 installed. The restore is of a backup that is about a month old.

There are some users that have their current e-mail on their mobile devices or on their laptops as cached mode was enabled. For these users that have current e-mail on their mobile device, what will happen when the restoration completes and the Exchange server comes online? Will they sync into Exchange, or will Exchange delete them from the mobile device?

Any ideas?

Once a sync is performed, devices will have their email synced to what is on the server and all new items will be deleted.  Better export to PST prior to connecting after restore.  Question is why are you going to restore Exchange from a month ago?  If you need something recovered, don't you think it would be wise to do that in an isolated environment.

As far as I know, unless a repair is done the data will not be lost.

Just in case I would instruct users to export to .pst (can be done from the server administratively also).

Any email in Exchange (after restored) will sync back to client. Normally, i will advice user to move email in OST to PST before exchange back online
