Backing up the mailstores with NT backup requires using the SQL agent.
Just backing up the data raw is going to leave you with a bunch of
useless data files. The good news is that the SQL agents that come with
NT backup work most of the time, even when third party sql agents dont
(arcserve anyone?) You shouldn't be restoring database files to a UNC
path anyway, since the table space and the indexes aren't taken into
consideration. This applies to all versions of Exchange. Shadow
Copy, AFIK is for data files not databases.
Want to reply to the person who sent this message?
This list is configured such that just hitting reply is going to result in the message coming to the list, not to the individual who sent the message. This was done to help reduce the number of Out of Office messages posters received. So if you want to send a reply just to the poster, you''ll have to copy their email address out of the message and place it in your TO: field.
