In such situations, users will not be able to login on the system and will not be able to open or receive emails.

Meanwhile, third party tools like RecoveryFIX for Exchange Server adopt a highly professional approach towards Exchange Server corruption and help its users in quick restoration of the lost database by performing compressive exchange recovery.
