One thing no one has mentioned would be to use ExMerge to backup the
individual mailboxes to .PST files, then back THOSE up to tape.

I haven't looked that hard, but it looks like you can run ExMerge from
the cmd line, so you could probably schedule it to run 60 minutes before
you start your backup.  I believe that once the .PST files are created
the first time, it only copies the changes thereafter making this
process much faster, but I could be wrong.

It also looks like you can run ExMerge from another computer - it
doesn't have to be run on the Exchange server - just gotta copy a bunch
of .DLL files into the same dir as the Exmerge.exe file.

You do need to be a little bit careful tho... the .PST files that
ExMerge crates are not encrypted or password protected at all, so anyone
can read them with a copy of Outlook.

We currently use Windows backup, Veritas is too expensive for our small
company, it works fine but I haven't managed yet to find a way to back
up individual mailboxes automatically.  If anyone else has please let me
know.
thanks

We just switched over to Veritas.  IT is a very good software, but still
we never found any limitations with backing up exchange with windows
software.

I've been told there are limitations or problems backing up Exchange
2000
using only Windows backup that comes with the OS. Can anyone please tell
me the best software to use to back up Exchange 2000.
