I've had repeated problems with an Exchange 2000 server that was upgraded from 5.5. Space issues, backup issues, various services don't work, I waste time investigating, because not all services are required. I had a consultant in a few months ago who suggested that I rebuild the server from scratch, as it was "messy and inconsistent - very difficult to troubleshoot issues".
I would like to know how to create a new Exchange 2000 server, but have only been working with Exchange a few months (worked with cc:Mail/Notes/Domino for years). I also need to do this with a minimum (or no) outlay of funds, if possible.
The mail server is a Dell PE 2650, running W2K server with current patches. Assistance greatly appreciated.
