When the company tries to backup Exchange I get this error message:

CExBackup::backupService:HrESEBackupSetup: Error Number 0xc800020e: An
incremental backup cannot be performed when circular logging is

I'm not sure what circular logging is but is it okay to turn it off and if it is, how do I do it?

Appreciate the help.

Circular logging should NOT be used - if it is then your ability to recover exchnage to the point of failure in the event of a problem is zero - so switch it off now.

Make sure that you do regular backups of exchnage, that way the transaction logs will be purged on a regular basis and will not keep filling up your disk.

Thanks.  How do I disable it?  kb314605 refers to clearing a checkbox for circular logging but I don't see any checkbox labeled as "Enable Circular Logging" in the Properties dialog box under System Manager|servers.  Am I missing something or has something changed from an update?

Oops.  My mistake.  I misread the instructions.  KB314605 has the correct instructions for turning off Circular Logging when you are not using Microsoft Backup on SBS 2003.
