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

Transparent shapes in Publisher 2003
Hi, I have a problem that I've posted on the Adobe Acrobat Forum and so far nobody has been able to provide a resolution to my problem. I've created some documents in Publisher 2003 that contain a few transparent shapes which act to highlight text, and also a WordArt title that has a shadow. However when I convert them to PDF to send to a Printing Company, the transparent shapes and the shadow come out as cross-hatch and not a smooth transparency - completely ruining the look of the documents. I'm assuming that this is not something new, so would hope that somone out there ...

Outlook 2003 installed on Exchange 2003 Bridgehead Server
I have recently found that a previous SysAdmin at my work has installed Outlook 2003 on our Exchange 2003 Bridgehead server which is NOT reccomended by Microsoft as we all know. We have the FE/OWA Server & the Bridgehead server located at the DR Site and the main cluster at our primary site. I have found several bits of information on how to make Outlook and Exchange coexist if we really have to but as this is a fairly critical server sending emails for over 1000 users in Asia Pacific I would ideally like to remove it however havent found any relevant information on what process i s...

Proper Security Settings on Exchange Install Folder?
I am trying to nail down the security of our Exchange 2003 servers before we start a mass migration off 5.5. One issue I am dealing with is securing the Exchange install directory, in my case c:\program files\exchsrvr I have a Microsoft Press Book "Secure Messaging with MS Exchange Server 2003" that talks about doing this on page 144, but the details aren't as clear as I would like them. For example, they say to remove the everyone inheritance. I don't have that. (thats not my question - but right away I'm seeing the book completely different from what I have) Th...

slow progress bar loading cloned XP SP2
Hello everyone This issue happened to me some times and I'm curious about it. XP SP2, cloned hard disk. I've tried everything: system seems to start disk driver, but hdd led does not blink.

share pst file without Exchange?
I have a home network - an old laptop in the kitchen and a new desktop in the office. I want the Outlook files to reside on the desktop since it's backed up and more reliable but would like to use the laptop for sending/receiving email. I'd like to be able to see the same info (sent mail, inbox, calendar) on both computers. Is it possible without using Exchange? I've succesfully connected the laptop to a mailbox.pst file on the desktop but since the inbox is empty I can only assume this isn't where the email is stored. Well, I have been trying to figure this out my...

Outlook 2007 not receiving all exchange emails
I have set up my dad's outlook 2007 to connect to his work exchange server (i think that is a 2000 exchange server). It has been able to download almost 3000 inbox emails, and calendar info, contacts etc but has now stopped getting any more (and hasn't received any more for several months). It says Connected to Microsoft Exchange in the corner and has a progress bar saying Updating Inbox, but nothing more is downloaded. I am using a VPN to his work to connect. Is there a limit on the amount it can download, the outlook0.ost file is 1.50 gb, which seems too exact to just be a coinciden...

Outlook 2003
We have a small office of just six users who are all on Office 2003. When the Message settings on a message are set to an Importance of Low or High, the recipient gets the message with a Normal Importance. The same thing is happening with the sensitivity settings.

Problem importing Contact OE6 to Outlook 2003

New Exchange 2003 Administrator
Hi, I was hoping I might be able to get a few questions I have answered here. I am relatively new with Exchange, but am now in charge of managing it for a 20-person company. We are running Exchange Server 2003 Standard SP2. Here are my questions: 1) I am pretty sure Exchange 2003 came with an Outlook 2003 CD. Does anyone know more about this? We are currently running Outlook 2000 on our workstations, so how would using the copy of Outlook 2003 that came with Exchange 2003 work? Does Exchange 2003 require each workstation connection to have a license (if so, then I guess we're...

Greetings, What's the easiest way to setup exchange to email the admin when a user's mailbox is either at the warning or prohibit limit? Thanks!

were trying to move outlook express address to a new 2003 outlook on an xp system. The old is a windows 98 system, on a network. And so far have no been able to import the setting or address.
