Invalid Directory Reported

When I remove a mailbox from exchange, BackupExec with the Exchange option complains about an invalid directory, citing the removed mailbox as the culprit.  It's obvious that I can cure the problem by removing the cited mailbox from the backup job.  However:

Question 1.
Is there anyway to configure BackupExec 10 to ignore this error?

Question 2.
Why doesn't BackupExec complain about missing non-exchange files?

You need to go in to Exchange System Manager and start the mailbox management process. Sooner or later (I have never timed it but it takes hours!) when you look at the mailboxes the one you deleted will show up with a red X one it. Right mouse click on it and select "purge". The Backup Exec error will disapperr. It's a pain but also good housekeeping ...
