Recovering Outlook 2003 Information

by 1JohnM / February 13, 2006 4:05 AM PST

Does anyone know of a way to recover my contacts and e-mail from my MSOUtlook 2003?
I have a server in my home running server 2003. MS Exchange was not in use. The servers raid controller went bad and when this happened it took all three of the hard drives with it (So much for redundancy). My backup of Outlook was on the server and I did not think I would have a problem since the information was also on my desktop & I saw all of the information when the server was down. When the server was fixed and all of the software was reloaded I had to reconnect my computers to the server even though I set it up using the exact information as before. Not thinking I did not do a backup of outlook before reconnecting and the computers all think that these are new connections. The tape drive held all my other information including other ms office files but none of my outlook files. Is thee a way to get this information back? Please help

Did you search for the PAB

the contacts are in the PAB you can search for *.pab.

I'm not certain but the mail would be in the .pst files.
