-------------------------------------------------------Actually, if you are 
going to do a blb, exmerge may be the very best tool to
do it...

But more specifically, a blb is any backup that is using MAPI to access the
mailbox content instead of using the Exchange backup API.

A blb should NEVER be used "instead of" an Exchange-aware backup, and
arguably (because of security and performance considerations) should never
be used at all.

-------------------------------------------------------Forgive this basic
question please, but am I right in thinking that a 
'Brick level' backup is using something like exmerge to extract 
individual mailboxes out to .pst's..?
