SBS 2011 corrupt Exchange

Have an SBS2011 that I have inherited, problem with the exchange database after a power out. A bad UPS and server crashed. Exchange is working sending and receiving emails OK, but Outlook is constantly connecting and disconnecting. Have ran all the eseutil repairs and it still says that the store is corrupt. Company won't purchase repair S/W.
Because it is only a small DB (8.5GB) with 12 users. I can easily backup up each account.
My question is, can I then delete the database then recreate it with the same DB name and add in the exchange accounts, then import each PST, would that still work with the SBS wizards?

Make sure you take legacy exchangedn copied before. And add it back to avoid mail bounce back from autocomplete.

I don't think  legacy exchangedn might come into picture here since we are not creating new mailboxes for these users.


We are just mount a blank EDB file so that mailbox GUID is intact.


But anyways for safer side you can take out the  legacy exchangedn from existing mailboxes as suggested by MAS.

That worked better than I thought, renaming the edb file was not enough as the log were a problem, I just moved all into a temp folder and it created a new database fine.
