It depends how many days' messages the user can afford to lose. For example, if you restore the user db from a tape 3 days ago, the user will lose the most recent 3 days' email.

I should have been more detailed on the first message...

If a userxx.db is corrupt you can try to recreate it in NWADMIN.  The recreate user database option option will relink any messages it can find in the MSGxx.db file.  But can you drop an older userxx.db from tape back in and run maintenance on the user or PO or both?


Can you restore a user database from tape and perform a rebuild or are you stuck with just trying to repair the damaged user db?
