  • backup mailboxes

    hello

    i want to ask about MS exchange 2003.

    my company's win 2003 SBS is full of viruses and i want to export all the mailboxes in order to import them after the format.

    could you please guide me how to do a full export or a full backup?


    thanks!

    It is far not so simply.

    If I were you I would do my best to clean up / repair the existing server. Installing a proper anti virus software can handle this task.
    Where are the viruses located, are they in operating system or in user's mailboxes?

    You have the option to migrate mailboxes to an other Exchange 2003 server in your exchange organization, uninstall Exchange, do a clean installation of operating system, prepare your server and install Exchange, move the mailboxes back. However this means a lot of work and you will still need to purchase and use an anti-virus software.

      Re: backup mailboxes

      Hello
      thanks for replaying

      The viruses are on windows system disk.
      i have already install a trial version antivirus but it's too late....
      antivirus detects Trojans, rootkits, spywares all over the system and cannot
      disinfect the infected filles

      also, this server is very old and i will, finally, move to a new one.

      the new server running win 2003 SBS is ready

      so, is there any tutorial for help?

      after searching with Google i found this link: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124429%28EXCHG.65%29.aspx
      but it's a bit complicated for me.....

      finally, we are talking about 19 mailboxes and 2 public folders, i don't mind creating again the mailboxes to the new server, i only want the users to keep their mails (inbox and sent items)....

      thank you

        OK, so your server is "kaputt" but you are happy to get rid of it

        In this case install Exchange 2003 on the new server and move the mailboxes to it.
