Our Exchange server seems to have developed a very strange problem.
On having restored our exchange server (5.5 sp3) from a disk crash, we
discovered that all file attachments have become impossible to read in the
Outlook client. Both old and new attachments are affected. Apart from that
the mailserver seems to work properly.
We strongly suspect that priv.edb has become corrupt, and we are prepared to
run eseutil to try and correct it.
But, and this is the strange part, other mail clients, such as Outlook
Express (using POP3 or IMAP), and The outlook WEB access seem to be able to
read the attachments. (using POP3 or IMAP it is possible to read directly,
in OWA the attachment can be saved to disk and read afterwards).
Does anyone have a clue as to what the cause of this might be?
It is now midnight here in Norway, and we're still working on this, so
please, any suggestions
