No, I am not wrong. You are. 
 
Like I said John, look at the script. Here is your quoted text, straight
from the script:

        '*************************************************
        ' Procedure DisableBadmail
        '
        '   Disables badmail from being written to disk by
        '   restricting the permissions on a given folder.
        '   (this is done by adding a DENY FULL CONTROL ACE
        '   for the local system account).
        '
        '*************************************************

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.
