First the envrionment is Exchange 03 sp2, Client XP sp3, Outlook 03 sp 2. The issue is a user wants to look at calendar entries for 2004 in outlook 03, when she looks back she finds no entries past a certain time in 2007 and states she didnt delete any entries. Any suggestion on how I can find these lost entries from the exchange server?? Any consideration given this issue will be appreciated. Thanks in advance

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Sounds like you’re gonna have to restore it from a backup tape from 2004.

Typically this happens when people are archiving their calendar. If she has auto-archive on then have her open the archive file and check the calendar there. She will find the missing appointments there. If she swears she is not auto-archiving, check her settings to verify then do a search in hidden files for *.pst. Open that pst on her folder list to search the calendar. She may have been archiving in the past.

    Thanks, I will look at all suggestions, I believe she manually deleted these when we made our end-users clean up their mailboxes in 2007, although she is just not admitting it. We did have them setup archiving late in 2007.
