Deleted MSG database

Deleted MSG database

Deleted MSG database

Dear All,

We are using GW 7.0.3, Netware 6.5.6. We had an incident where MSG0.db to MSG24.db suddenly disappeared from the system. After restoring the databases (only the lost ones were brought back), some users who had emails before had got jumbled emails now. In short, if they had an email from Person A with Text A, now they have the email from Person A with Text B(someone elses email in the body of the message).  It looks like after the restore all the links have got corrupted or the Indexes.

Any ideas anyone ?  If I shut the POA and MTA, delete the Indexes and then restart it will it work ?

Many Thanks for any info re this.


RE: Deleted MSG database

I would restore the whole system, not just the MSG files. You may have more files missing than what you realize.
