What do you want to know?  Exchange will use all the memory it can in the 
box, up to 4GB, for caching, and this isn't a function of store size.  It 
will release memory so that other processes can get what they need.

Exchange server and outlook
Hi, We have been running a couple of antiquated computers on a network with the server running Microsoft Exchange Server 5.5. The PC's were running outlook 97 and 2000.

Client requirements for OWA on Exchange 2000.
Semester starting again. I expect the normal issues with Remote users having problems accessing my Exchange 2000 site via OWA.

Exchange 2003 ESM and Outlook 2003 coexistance on the same client
Is there any convenient way to have Exchange 2003 ESM and Outlook 2003 coexist on the same client. I would like to install ESM on my customer service tech's machines but, as you may know, Exchange and outlook use the same mapi32.dll file. I have found a registry hack that will keep Exchange's mapping the the dll and not let Outlook mapi32.dll checking function overwrite it but it seems to break down every so ofter. For some reason it will be working fine for months, then ESM stops working and I need to reinstall again (possible due to Outlook security updates). Have any of you ...

PRB : Backup Exchange Task never ends
hello I have configured a daily backup task, with the NTBackup program on a SBS 2003 Server.

Data loss during Exchange migration to 2003
Whilst carrying out mbx migrations to Exchange 2003 (from 2000) we noticed that many account mbxs shrank during their migration. Even with the create failure report option selected (i.e. if problem don't move it) the msg count dropped by one and/or between 1-3MB was lost from many accounts. Is this some kind of index that is not required or needs to be recreated in 2003? or something else?

Exchange server and huge emails generated to postmaster
