I have been asked to look into recovering a mailbox that existed back in
1998-99 in order to recover old sent emails (from the sent mail folder).
The site did regular backups of exchange. Naturally both the hardware and
software have been upgraded since then and no one knows/remembers what the
original configuration was at the time of the backups.
At this stage my idea is to try and restore the complete server onto a
spare and try to get exchange "up and running" as a standalone.
Does anyone have any thoughts/hints/tips/prayers they could offer ?
