There's a little book I bought at Borders called Microsoft Exchange
Administrator's Pocket Consultant that has helped me sift through all of
those screens and find the places to turn off the archiving and so on.

Here's a link to a few Exchange tips. This guy suggests that PST files are
bad, and so is backing up the mailboxes at the Brick Level, like ARCserve
does. He suggests using alternate methods that are more stable.
As a side note, my IN & OUT directories are empty. Must be because I have
autoarchive turned off.

I set up an archive.pst in each users' home directory. To redirect the
archiving to this location you have to go to each client and in outlook
"Tools" - "Options" there is an auto archive tab that lets you set location
(It will also show you were the info is going, I think the default is on the
C: drive of the local machine. With my heavier users I also load the
archive.pst in their outlook directory so they can have quick access to old
info (makes them happy to see it there even though they don't use it much).
Hope this helps

We are running Small Business Server 4.5 and Outlook 2000 loaded
the default settings. As such all e-mail is stored on the server.
systems is archiving e-mail in 2 folders
\exchsrvr\imcdata\out\archive. I am looking for advice to manage
files. It appears that deleting e-mail and archiving at the client
no impact on these files is this correct? I noticed a change in the
resource totals but not in the archive files. Where is the path for
files called out in the configuration parameters? Should I be
mailbox size limits? Should I reconfigure clients to store e-mail
(reduced server transactions)?ghtly backups)? My search of MS
and Boarders book shelf came up short any help would be greatly
