Exchange 2003 with KVS Enterprise Vault 6 SP2


This is my first posting on this site - I find it an invaluable source
of information, I am responsible for the Exchange enviornment in our
Organisiation which is local goverment.

We have two Exchange 2003 servers with the mailstores spread evenly
over the two servers, we have one front end server hosting OWA 2003
and one server hosting KVS EV6 SP2, we have about 1800 live users at
any one time.

The hardware seems to cope no probles with the loading, the problem we
are having is that the vault is growing at an alarming rate, approx
1GB per night, we have no reprting tools to see what is happening in
KVS other than the simple SQL scripts given to us by Symantec.

We have had this running for around 12-15 months now and our vault
partition is already approaching 1TB in size.

Does anyone know of any reporting tools available for KVS and Exhange
combined - bearing in mind that we will soon be looking at upgrading
to Exchange
2007 if it is thought beneficial.

We currently are saving all emails with a retention period of forever
- so the vault is bound to grow - we are trying to get all departments
to agree to a deletion policy but being local goverment - things
happen very slowly.

We have got around our backup problems by splitting the vault up
active partitions, (we use Netbackup)

Any help would be appreaciated - have many users experienced the same

Exchange Server slowness
We use MS Exchange 2002 server for email and use the program Outlook 2003. Lately it has been extremely slow and a message pops up stating it is retrieving file from MS Exchange Server. Any suggestions? If the message appears on your workstation it may not be a server related issue. The issue maybe related to the amount of traffic on the network. To know if the server is slow more information such as disk, memory and cpu utilization needs to be known. Also check if there are any relevant messages in the event logs of your worksatation and server. "Carlos Pisquem" <ccccpi...

Can Import Email Data Filed from Office XP to Office 2003
My HD failed but I had a backup of my Office XP Pro personal file folder with a lot of emails I needed. The file is about 128MB in size. I put a new HD in and installed Office 2003 Pro. When I go to open the old file Outlook 2003 says that the file "is not a personal folders file". (It was backed up to a CD ROM prior to the crash so the source file should be good.) I really don't want to uninstall Office 2003 and put back Office XP. Any idea why 2003 won't open the file and how to work around that? Many thanks in advance to anyone who knows the solution. Alan.

Upgrade to exchange enterprise #2
Hello I have just moved to exchange enterprise from exchange standard(with the mailbox move method). Everything has gone well but i'm noticing that i'm still getting event 1221 messages stating that there is x amount of space in the public and private message stores. Just wondering if i should still be getting these messages. I'm aware though that exchange space is white space based and that when you exceed the amount of white space the database will grow again. But just wondering if i should still be getting those 1221's. Thanks On Mon, 6 Jun 2005 09:17:03 -070...

Colors in Excel 2003
Hi Excel 2003: Is there a possibility, to use any RGB-color (f.e. for the background of a cell)? I have specified a color in Excel 2007 and then opened and saved the document in Excel 2003. After that, the color wasen't equal to the original specification ... it had changed to a 2003 stan- dard color. So I have the misgiving, that the free RGB-definition isn't possible in Excel 2003. Am I right? Can somebody help me? Many thanks for any help. Best Regards George Colors in 2003 are limited to 56. However you can tailor the 56 to meet your needs.

Outlook 2003 Not shutting down on XPSP2
I've had a weird problem as of late and I can NOT figure out what is causing it. Just a few weeks ago Outlook 2003 started showing shutting down problems. That is when I simply close the application the Outlook icon in the taskbar area (beside the clock) won't go away. I go into TaskManager and it still shows Outlook 2003 running with 30mb of ram being used. Well at the time I chalked it upto horrible system configuration since I hadn't reformatted in a year. So I reformatted, put all of my usual software back on and I'm still getting the EXACT SAME problem. Curren...
