Our office had some custom forms that we used constantly and then IT replaced our exchange server. Now we have no more forms but the server is still in the office but disconnected.

What type of files and where on exchange server would we find these custom forms. Any ideas?

I'll have to check - I don't think they are recoverable unless you turn the server on and connect outlook to it. But... see if they are in the formscache - if so, you should be able to get them from the forms cache on any machine that opened the forms. The cache is at C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Microsoft\FORMS

I'll have to dig up the instructions to recover from forms cache...

Hi Diane,

I took your directions and was able to restore the .tmp files into .oft files and open in outlook.

The forms now work on new posts but how do I get the old stored data to work on these newly restored
forms
? When you open the old data they look like emails but everything seems to still be there including
my custom fields.
