You could try bringing up another exchange 2000 server in your site and moving 
the mailboxes and services to the new server, then rebuild the old server and 
move them back.

Subject: [exchangelist] Questions about rebuilding an exchange server.

I have an exchange server that was mangled before I started working here. It is 
an Exchange  2000 Enterprise server running on windows 2000. I want to upgrade 
it to Server / Exchange 2003 but I know that there are MANY MANY problems with 
the IIS permissions , and the server design including the hard drive layout is 
totally wrong for the size of the server.

What is the best way to move the databases off the server , format / reinstall 
and move the databases back in place, or is this even possible? Please help.. ;)
