The Servername.log dir are the tracking logs, they should be deleted
automatically according to the General tab of the server properties in
ESM.

Do not delete the log files in the mdbdata directory. Run an online
full exchange aware backup to purge those.

I use CA's BrightStor Arcserve backup with both the Exchange Agent and Open 
File aganet, but I still have 845 MB of files in the mdbdata folder.  Any 
ideas?

Dont use the open file agent for exchange. 
Are you doing a full backup? 
What do the event logs and backup logs say? 
Any errors?

2003: Desktop alerts on IMAP messages?
Sometimes I think I'm dating an airhead, because everytime I go out with Microsoft, she looks more beautiful than ever, but at heart she's still a bubble- gum chewing ditz. So it is with Outlook 2003 My work email uses an IMAP server, but Outlook won't let me get desktop alerts on my IMAP folder. It says that it can only do this for the default inbox (and I can't get my IMAP folder to become the default inbox). So, I've been ignoring the default inbox and using the IMAP folder without alerts. I can change the freaking transparency of the alerts, but I can't...

Exchange / POP3
In short: How does one go about having exchange POP email for users whom have 3rd party POP 3 server accounts? Expanded Reason: I have an exchange server setup here and I would like to get email to my users from a 3rd party POP3 account. I would normally just change MX records and point to my exchange server and have the email go right to the exchange server, but this ISP will not allow me to receive inbound SMTP. So as it stands; I can send email from my exchange server using my internet connection with out any issues, it's the receiving part that has me hung up, and if I co...
