Pretty sure about the POP3 thing but one can never be too certain. As
far as my hourly Incrementals...insanity I suppose.  I always have this
feeling that my database will go corrupt any second :-) lol

Are you sure your users are not running a POP3/IMAP client at home and
have it set to download the messages to the client :-), not the first
time I have seen this happen.


What is the reason for doing an hourly incremental backup?

Hey Everyone,


I have kind of a strange problem.  There are these two mailboxes in my
Exchange Server 2003 organization that keep mysteriously losing all
items in their Inbox.  All other folders underneath are seemingly
unaffected.  Thank God I had a backup of them from last night but I
can't see anything on the server end that could cause this.  There are
no update policies to clean out mailboxes, there is no archiving
happening at the users end.  The ONLY coincidence I am seeing is that I
do hourly Incremental backups of the database and it happened right
after a backup.  Is it possible that messages can get deleted after the
online backup taking place (with log files being deleted and all???)  


ANY help at all you guys could give would be wonderful!  Thanks I
