ACL on Mail Folder

I  had notice there was a padlock on the mail folder in the data directory. I contacted support about it because I was not sure what it was. I ask since there was another mail folder if I could delete it. I also sent him a screen shot. I started to delete it and it failed. Now most of my mail files are gone. Is there anything I can do besides restore from last nights backup? i am afraid I have really screwed up this time.

Restore

If you have replicas of each mail database on another server, you can push those replicas back over - otherwise a restore sounds as if is your only option.

Is the padlock you're referring to seen in the Administrator client in the 'Files' tab? That padlock indicates the directory has a Directory ACL - right click and choose 'Manage Directory ACL' to see who has access. I wouldn't necessarily expect to see a Directory ACL on the mail directory, but as long as the ACL contains each user (and server) that needs access to the directory you should be ok.
