Restoring an Exchange Mailbox with EV Archived emails back to original state.
I'm hoping that this is going to be fairly straight forward, but it's not something that I've ever had to do before.
We're running Exchange 2010 with EV 9.0 (Version: 18.104.22.1681 in About EV). What I need to do is backup an entire Exchange Mailbox to PST, delete the Mailbox from Exchange, delete the User from AD, then setup a new AD User with a fresh new Mailbox and then Import the PST items back into the new fresh Mailbox. All sounds very easy, however the user has emails that have been archived by EV, so I'm not sure of the steps on that side.
Firstly, how can I restore the items that have been archived to EV back to their original state within the Exchange Mailbox? This will then allow me to create the PST.
Secondly, once the emails within the PST have been imported back into the new Mailbox should I then just let EV do its thing and archive the emails as if it were a new mailbox, or should I 'attach' the old EV Mailbox archive to the new Exchange Mailbox?
If any further details are required please let me know.
Thanks in advance.
