My boss has lost all her emails, because everything was being saved to her C drive, not to the network (I know, but that's the way the IT dept set it up).
The PC got a BSOD. The C drive was removed by IT without an attempt to diagnose/repair the file system, even though they were asked. (I know, I know).
My idea is that her regular correspondents send back all the emails we have sent or received or cc'd from her.
If you select a block of emails and try to send them, they get packaged into a single email as multiple .msg attachments.
I thought "OK, we'll copy those to a folder called Old Emails and then she can do a search [search companion XP SP3] on the folder to look through the folders contents to find what she needs.
When I tested it, Search can't find words or phrases in the emails.
We are in a real fix.
Any Ideas? There are too many emails to send individually. (Please don't tell us what ought to have happened!)
