I am trying to find MS best practices for creating message stores and storage groups, when and why I should break them into multiple groups and things like that. Anyone know where I can find these?

Thank you

These should be covered in chapter 7 of the Exchange Server 2003 Administration Guide [1].

Mailbox store best practices are also hidden in "Best Practices for Configuring Exchange Back-End Storage" [1]. Specifically, "It is also important to plan how you will group mailboxes into mailbox databases. Because Exchange can maintain single-instance storage within individual databases, workgroup users are kept in the same database when possible.".

P.S. You only get the luxury of multiple storage groups and mailbox/PF stores when your back-end server is running Enterprise Edition.
