    Hi All,

    I have a mailbox full of a hell of alot of email, which should of been sent to users. However because the email addresses wernt set up right the emails went into the catch all.

    Is there a way of taking these emails and putting them back into Exchange to be routed to the users? I cant think how to do it that way.

    well sort of...

    I'd log into exchange as that catch all account (administrator in most cases). Sort the mail by recipient , then create .pst files for each recipient , move the appropriate messages into each .pst file then manually import contents of each .pst file into the proper exchange accounts.

    it's manual work, but unless you're talking about 1000 users it's not bad, I did it once for about 160 and was done in about 4 hours (with 80GB worth of exchange database). although I did it during a migration that did not go se well, lol
