major increase in transaction log files

Hello,
I've already browsed through the other postings and didn't find a match for 
our issue.

we're running Exchange 2003 ent cluster BE with a single server FE for the 
gateway (all SP1).

The front end is scanning AV and has intelligent message filtering and is 
enabled for circular logging (on it's own local drive).

The back end does not have AV scanning or IMF, but does have full text 
indexing turned on the mail and public folders.

Prior to turning on FTI, we noticed an extremely sharp increase in the 
amount of transaction logs & I can't seem to find a source of the increase 
(other than scanning AV applications, which again, is not running on the back 
end servers).

After turning on FTI, there was no change.  Obviously, mailbox moves and 
other database activities are also going to increase the amount of txn logs, 
but none of those activities are occurring in our system.

We have about 500+ users and we're doing around 10K-20K e-mails and public 
folder in's and out's per day.  When we were around 400 users, we noticed 
that our logs were going about 200-300MB/day.  Now we're about 3-4GB (or 
more) per day.

Any ideas, suggestions, patches, etc?

thanks,
Corky

Sharing a money file on a server
Money 2004.... I have my Money file on a shared folder on a server. I have two client computers that I wish to be able to access this file from. I have Money 2004 installed on both clients.
