I am using Veritas Backup Exec and my backup is failing because of a corrupt folder in a user's mailbox.  I am getting the following message from Backup Exec "Can not backup directory Richard Fisher [rfisher]潢Ꚁ獣扦ā휰ǢNYEX1 Differential Das is what I was proposing to send to James Kelly - he has texted me his email and its subdirectories".  I am unable to find this folder in both the user's Outlook inbox or in Backup Exec's selection list so I am unable to remove it.  I am trying to avoid having to use Microsoft's eseutil utility to get rid of this corrupt folder.  I am using Exchange 2000 with Outlook 2003.  Does anyone have any suggestions?
