  • Email missing but folders remain.

    Hi,
    have had an issue where the email in all the subfolders of the inbox have dissapeared but the folders have remained.

    I ran
    Code:
    Get-MailboxStatistics -Database "Mailbox Database"
    and is showed over 6,000 messages against the mailbox.

    When I click on a folder there are items in the recover deleted items, is this what is being calculated in the 6,000 itmes?

    Is there any way of undeleting them via the console as there is a lot of subfolders, would take me a day at least doing it via Outlook?

    Thanks.
    John.

    So far this have been a one off.

    I restore the email from a backup and since then it has not happened again.

    After restore I did run into Mailbox full so word to the wise, disable email box size checking before restore.

    I also set the deleted retention to 2 days and over the weekend the size has gone down dramatically so the size must have been due to deleted mail in retention.

    John.
