Call Me a Dinosaur!

touchpcPC technology is truly amazing.  Apple has just released its watch computer with virtually every app you might want, and others that you may download.  Everyone has a tablet and is coveting an iPhone 6, in order to be fully “computerized” wherever s/he may be on the planet.  We can draw, paint, develop a graph or chart in a minute, and have complex statistical formulas spit out data and analysis within seconds.  Voice commands allow disabled individuals to write and email, and Siri is an amazing personal assistant.

I love the new technology and have participated in it almost as rapidly as it has become available.  I have read and viewed amazing text and videos about technology of the future and am an avid follower of all technology “shows” that present the newest innovations.  It’s exciting!

Extract Emails from the Exchange Server to a PST File using ExMerge utility

extract emailThe Exchange Server has the EDB files to store multiple mailboxes in a multi-user environment. In other words, the implementation of the Exchange Server in an organization creates multiple EDB files, each storing the mailbox of an individual. Thus, the number of EDB files on the MS Exchange Server is subject to the number of users or their corresponding mailbox count.

For the Exchange Server to function smoothly or flawlessly, there should be no violation, error, or a like scenario existing. During the Exchange Server downtime or in a similar scenario when your mailbox is not accessible, you can ask the Exchange Administrator to create a PST file of your mailbox, which you are supposed to import into an Outlook client. However, what if the Exchange EDB files are corrupt? Creating a PST from a corrupt EDB file might not be possible. In such cases, extracting your emails in a PST from the Exchange Server is quite bothersome.
