-------------------------------------------------------The .STM file, or 
streaming file, holds non-MAPI information while the
.edb file, or the Exchange database (essentially a large JET
(Access-type of technology) database holds the messages and the MAPI
information.  

If someone sends e-mail or accesses e-mail from a non-MAPI client (POP3,
IMAP4, Web), that e-mail is stored in the .stm file.  Mail from the
internet is also non-MAPI and comes in a format called MIME. This
information is also stored in the STM file.

It may be converted to MAPI when a MAPI user (Outlook) accesses it and
it is also converted to MAPI when the Move Mailbox wizard is used.
There also may be pointers in the .edb to information in the STM.

Subject: [ExchangeList] Migration Exchange 2000 to 2003

http://www.msexchange.org
-------------------------------------------------------Hello all,

I migrated an exchange 2000 organisation to Exchange 2003.

i did this by adding a new 2003 server so that we can reinstall the
currecnt
exchangeserver.

I used the move mailbox procedure to move the mailboxes. Now I have
noticed
that everything is moved well , but that the size of the STM file has
not
increased. On the old server it was  about 3 gb big, now only a couple
of
mb. instead there are a lot of *.log files... are these the messages
that
were in the STM file before?
And did I use the wrong procedure/tool?

Thnx,

Mark
