  • exporting mail to pst without starting exchange

    Ok I want to apologize in advance if this has already been covered as I could find no specific reference to my request in these forums. Well recently I did a complete overhaul of our system at my office moving from sbs 2003 with exchange 6.5 to sbs 2008 with exchange 2007, the move went fine and I began tinkering wiht the old server as I thought I had no more use for it. So I change the server name on the 2003 server only to find out that there is a user who needs to get there mail off the server (somehow they lost the disk with there pst on it) anywho I try to change the name back what is was only to find that exchnge services (all of them) will not start. I am just wondering if there is any way to get the email data off the old server if exchange will no start. I have already tried using exmerge to0 export the data but it apears that this will not work without the services running, Any help with this would be greatly apreaciated.

      Without doing a full restore the only option is something like Ontrack Power Controls. However that is quite expensive, so you may well have to carry out a full recovery installation.
