  • old messages

    Hi.

    Am running exchange 2000 server with outlook 2000.
    My boss' laptop was stolen and used to archive the old messages on the local drive. Have been told to recover all his old messages;
    Is it possible? If so, need help on how to go about it.

    Thank you.

    If the messages have been archived onto a .pst file on his local laptop then no, there is no chance you can recover them.

    Your boss should have kept a backup copy of all files stored locally on his laptop

      The only possibilty is if you have a backup of the night before your boss archived his mail.

      Else you've no chance.

        Don't know if this applies or is what you're looking for... (we, the readers, don't know how old the messages are, when they were archived, how they were archived) http://support.microsoft.com/kb/178630

          thx guys for all the help, the archived mail was indeed in .pst file on the local machine.
          don't have any backup copy.

          once again, thx for the replies.
