Unsuccessful removal of IFS mapping for drive M in Exchange 2003

I ran the Exchange Server baseline security analyser and it pointed out that I had the IFS drive M mapping enabled.  I followed the link for instructions on how to remove it and altered the registry keys as suggested.

I restarted the ser but still the M drive appears and maps to mailboxes and e-mails, although the baseline security analyser no longer reports an issue!

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.

Did you unmap the drive from user's workstations as well?

Hi TechSoEasy

The M: drive was never mapped on the workstations.  It is accessible only on the server where it is still mapped.

Thanks

Then please follow this KB Article:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/305145

Even though it states it's for Exchange 2000 you'll note in this KB 821836 (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/821836) it references 305145 as the appropriate method.

The problems with reply email signatures

Do you wish that you could place an email signature under a reply? Well, unfortunately, you can't. That great Exchange/Office 365 signature you've created will just appear at the bottom of an email chain. What a pain! Is there really no way to solve this? Well, there might be...

OK, that's worked fine, thanks.  It's a shame the MS haven't updated their KB article.

Kind regards.

They haven't updated it because the official documentation for migrating to Exchange 2003 and SBS advises you to remove the M-drive mapping before performing the migration.  

:-)

But glad you got it taken care of.
