Hi angelIII,

  That procedure from that microsoft article, I have to do Online, I mean when all the services are running??? u mean there is no need to copy the data first and then point from System manager??
In my D:\ drive i have to create the folders like d:\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA ??
or when u change the path from System manger, the data will move automatically??  Pls clarify.

The operation is online, but with the store dismounted:

<...>To perform the requested operation(s), the store must be temporarily dismounted which will make it inaccessible to any user.
<...>

the process is so straigthforward that even I, being a Exchange Noob, could do that already on a prod server.

  Dear angelII,
  Thanks for ur immediate response. I will try that procedure today and let u know.
meanwhile I have another dought also, which I already posted, regarding POP3.
 I have exchange 2003, and my company has pop3 account in some US server.
 So when I send a mail to my users email id i.e say brado@xyz.com, this mail will go to US server, and from that server, Our Exchange 2003 server retrievs and distribute to the respective user.BUT this is not happening, mails are NOT delivering to respective user, so I configured routing group and mapped each user to that global mailbox.But in that Bcc field mails  will not deliver.

  So what is the solution for this?  PLS help

Thanx again.
