Well dude, hate to say you are wrong, but you are wrong. The script
does/says nothing about changing permissions on that folder.

 

No where does any thing say to change the permissions of the badmail folder
to deny to the system account.

 

Please post quoted text stating that it is the right way to change the
permissions on that folder to deny for system!

Really, dude?

 

Why don't you check out the Badmail Deletion and Archiving script, available
from Microsoft's download site.

 

Look at how it turns off Badmail creation for versions of Exchange 200x
prior to Exchange 2003 sp1.

 

It does EXACTLY what I said.

 

It's the RIGHT way to do it.

That would be the wrong way to go about it.

Why not just put an explicit deny full control for localsystem on the
folder? :-)

Too bad you arent running Exch 2003 SP1 <g>

Why not just create a batch file that deletes the contents every x
hours/days?

I would like to know how people here handle their badmail-folder?

 

I normally try not to open it, because the huge amount of files that can be
in there (spam) that may decrease the proformance as the server lists those
files.

 

Normally I rename the badmail-folder to badmail.old, create straight away a
new badmail-folder and delete the old badmail-folder.

 

Anyone sees problems in this way of working or has better solutions?

 

Thanks in advance,

Rob.
