restore single mailbox exchange 5.5 sp3

if you have the .pst file on the laptop, then all you have to do is make the new account on exchange, make a profile (in outlook or whatever you are using to read the mail), create a personal folder, point to the .pst file on the laptop. At that point in Outlook or whatever you are using, in the folders section should be the new accounts folders and the personal folders. Drag and drop the personal folders onto the exchange folders.

If you do not have the laptop, the only way to get it back is to restore the mailbox on exchange. But that would have meant you are running a backup software that allows the restore of an individual mailbox. IF not, you have to restore all the mailboxes on a separate exch svr, make a .pst file, and thendo the above business.

The first answer is essentially correct, but I've usually found it easier to just import the *.pst file into the new mailbox (after setting up the new mailbox and profile, open Outlook, click File, then Import/Export, then choose Import File from Another Program or File, file type will be *.pst and then it will prompt you for the location of the file).

if you cant find the pst, try for an ost, they can be exported into a pst file.

If all else fails, create a duplicate server.

make it a pdc in the same domain, same exchange site details and restore an old back to that server and create a new pst
