1. You need to be backing up the Information Store. That is first priority
to backup. Mail boxes are second priority.

2. What kind of AV are you running?

Greetings all

When I check after the monthly backup I find tons of notifications in the
mail administrator inbox that a virus has been caught and message was
deleted for many users. Those messages are old ones even from more than a
year or could be recent too. And the concerned users receive a copy of the
notification as well, and they panic.

I have exchange 2000 and doing backup through veritas, the only thing when
the problem appears is that the monthly backup we do the mailboxes not the
information store, is there a way to stop these notifications? I don't know
why they are produced in the first place since these are old emails and
supposed to be clean. And the next month the same messages have the same
