Mailbox Server Crashed, can I use ActiveSync mail on Ipad to "recover" email RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had an Exchange 2010 server (only one), running all services have a hard crash with no backup. I was lucky that 2 days earlier setup a second AD controller, and second Exchange server in the environment.  There were no backups of the original server (I DON'T HAVE ANY MDB FILES). I was able to get most users email back, by exporting OST to PST, then re-importing the PST file. I have 4 users who never used Outlook, only OWA. They have all their email on Ipad's. I have changed their passwords so the IPad are not connecting to the new mail server. I need to find a way to get the email on the IPads back to the new mail server. I am afraid that if I just let ActiveSync connect, it will delete all the email on the IPad, since it is no longer on the mail server.

    No mailboxes were actually deleted from the crash.  I was able to re-home them to the new Exchange server, I don't know if that make any difference.

  • Hi There,

    You can try 3rd party applications to connect the IPAD to export the emails. Here is a link you can try:
