I want to do a backup of my information store without anyone connected to the exchange server, but I don't want to disconnect the exchange server from the network.  I can hold incoming emails on a gateway server.  How do I prevent outlook connections and webmail connections with the fewest number of services-shut-off as possible?  (If it is possible.)

Actually, the webmail connections I can stop at the firewall.  It's only the in-house outlook connections that I don't know how to do.

if you unmount the databases, the users will not be able to connect.  You can then just copy the priv and pub files and make backups of the mdbdata directory.
