  • recover deleted emails of another user

    Hello,
    I am familiar with the recovery of deleted emails for myself as a user, however if I add another users mailbox (see below)to my list of mailboxes I cannot use the recover deleted items feature. Anybody have any ideas on how to do this, without alerting the user. I do have Admin rights and all that and this is Exchange 2003.

    before anyone jumps in and says "backup tapes", these are emails that are deleted quickly after they are received and do not stay overnight, yep those kind of emails....

      If you have full rights over the user's mailbox then why dont you create a new Outlook profile and open their account that way. You will have access to their deleted items and you can recover them as well

        excellent, that works, however it recovers to their mailbox, if they are in as well they will see emails that they deleted come back. while not perfect it will works for me for now.

          You could always drag the recovered emails into a Public Folder and then drag them into your Outlook profile from there. Bit messy but it also keeps it covert from the offending L user.

          2 2 was 1 2.

            I wonder if this will work...

            Open thier outlook profile and add you mailbox as an additional mailbox. Then recover the deleted items and then you can instantly move it into your mailbox.

            or Biggles's idea will work as well

              biggles-

              actually what i did was drag the email straight to my desktop...but you have to do it quick to get it out of the deleted items folder, just in case they happen to be in that folder as well

                I get the feeling you're not wanting the user to know you're recovering the deleted emails. You could configure that user's email to be forwarded to another box as well as delivered to the user. That way you'd have record of emails received. But if you're looking to get record of "sent mail", "Calendar", etc, it obviously wouldn't work for that.

                    If you dont trust your users configure the archive feature. Every mail sent to / from the exchange organisation will be copied to a designated mailbox which you can then filter for the user in question

                      Quick note:

                      If you have full mbx rights on their mailboxes, open OWA to the following URL:

                      http://server/exchange/username/fold...md=showdeleted

                      (folder name = inbox, calendar, so on)
                      Cheers,

                          This worked perfectly, but i had a hard time moving the emails out quietly.
                          This is a covert operation...must be careful .

                            Be vewy vewy quiet, we're hunting emails.

                            2 2 was 1 2.

                              Follow the 'Standard' procedure, dont think you need the advanced one.

                              In a correction to what I said before this will work for all mails sent to / from a mailbox store, not the organisation as I said before. So if you have two mailbox stores then you will need to configure it twice.
