Changing the Exchange Virtual Server (SMTP) Mailroot Directory.
Posted on 2004-08-02
I notice in the Properties for each SMTP virtual server on a Microsoft Exchange Server Computer you can change the directory path for "BadMail".
I would like to change the directory path for the whole MailRoot directory, as I have a disk array in the server for critical data that cannot be virus scanned etc, on here i currently hold my Exchange Databases, NTDS, SYSVOL etc etc and need to move the MailRoot folder here too, but as I said can only seem to find the setting for the BadMail directory path.
I also notice that my three BadMail Directories have collectily about 4Gb of data in them, I have never cleaned these out and don't really have much knowledge of what is stored here, most of it seems to be Non Delivery Reports. Could anyone please give me some info on what gets stored here and why, and if it's OK to periodically clear this stuff up.
