Is there a way to restore my messages in server.

Also if I imported the .pst file to exchange will the sent items will be disappeared/deleted.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Sounds to me like you configured a POP3 account and it pulled all of your email off the server.

Configure an Exchange account and drag your emails from the Personal Folders back over to the server inbox. Disable auto Send/Receive while you do this or the POP3 account will just pull them back off again when it next receives.
