They are your message tracking logs, and backup will not purge them,
look on the server properties and see what you have set.

Subject: [exchangelist] Exchange 2003 Database Log files 

Hi all,


I noticed that on my Exchange server, the log files in the \Program
Files\Exchsrvr\servername.log\ directory have not been purged for many
weeks. This server is running Windows NT backup and I thought that the
log files get purged when the backup runs.  I even ran a manual backup
making sure that I was backing up the Exchange stores, yet no luck.  Log
files remain. 


Any suggestions?
