Hi,

I just migrated all accounts from exchange 2003 incl. contacts etc. succesully - btw. pretty nice the migration util!
BUT Wink the ms$ exchange admin decided in the past to store all mail data as well in local profiles as *.ost files! After the migration process i realized that A LOT of missing mails are stored in those files. So, i backuped all ost files from each account and now i have to recover and merge them with the migrated data. What is the best case to realize that...is there a tool?
Any ideas - is there a better way?

Btw. at the same time i switched everything from a windows domain to linux smb workgroup for good reasons Wink just about 10 user. So, on every client winxp and win7 i found the recent user based ost file!

Hmmm - i highly appreciate any input!

Hi Tiberius,

We do not have a tool to bring in data from .ost files sadly. This will need to be a manual process by importing them in via Outlook to their Kerio account but you must be aware that this could cause problems with time stamps being changed.

All the best,
Vicky

Hey Vicky,

thx for your reply - unfortunately there is no common/easy way to restore 'ost' files with outlook Wink there are a bunch of expensive tools out there to convert 'ost' files to 'pst' as well as smarter but limited ways to accomplish this task.

Finally, i found a fancy way using a tool called 'readpst' which is open source and brilliant in general for such tasks.

For everyone who has to recover or restore pst or ost files just use this library!

I highly recommend to include this in the kerio tool-set for many reasons.
Yeah, i know there is a kerio wishlist..voting, etc. i have no time and motivation for such click and vote web2.0 thing Wink

I just share my info about a non trivial task!

Cheers

You can use Kernel for OST to PST Conversion Tool from www.kerneldatarecovery.com/ost-recovery.html to successfully find the lost emails and other items from that damaged ost file.


A good example for an expensive tool Wink Thx anyway.
