    One tool you can use is Exmerge, a trusted Microsoft free download. For more info, see this thread - exmerge is great for exporting mailboxes and calendar to PST files and importing these PST files into Exchange. If Exchange goes down, you can either
    • Open the pst file directly from within Outlook, which is great for near instant availability or
    • Use Exmerge to import the mailboxes back into Exchange once you have it back up and running again

      NTBACKUP? Does the job. I use it on a number of sites, including my home system without any problems.

      Exmerge will not backup the address list - that will backup just the raw data. Exmerge does not give you enough information to restore the Exchange server completely - you only get the content. No permissions or other settings. To do that you need to use an Exchange aware backup application. NTBACKUP or a commercial backup solution with an Exchange agent.

      You cannot backup Exchange in the regular way like you do files, it has to be an Exchange aware tool.

        Yes that's right - Exmerge will backup users' emails and personal address books but not the whole of Exchange. I should have made that clear.
