My exchange server has been hijacked and I am in the process of re-formatting it and re-installing exchange.  Befoer I do that, I am checking all muy settings and I noticed that in the permissions area of the properties security page of the mailbox store, there is an entry called "Anonymous Logon".  I can find no reference to this entry anywhere.  Can anyone tell me whether it is legitimate?

Hi,
In Exchange 2003 Anonymous Logon has the following rights by default on the msExchPrivateMDB ie your Mailbox DB (store) and also your Public Store::
  • Read Permissions
  • Read All Properties
  • List Contents ACTRL_DS_LIST_OBJECT
Here is a link to guide you and for reference in terms of permissions as you are concerned about the Security ::: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb123738(EXCHG.65).aspx
Hope this helps
Thanks
