Mounting and Dismounting Mailboxes or Sources

Offline sources are datasets, or copies or backups of Exchange databases (EDB, STM, LOG files).  Before you can Search, Recover, or Export any data, DigiScope® must mount the associated files.  When mounting an Exchange database set (EDB, STM, LOGs), you can choose to mount all of the mailboxes within the Offline source or just the mailboxes you wish to interact with.
