i have an exchange 2003 bridgehead server.  it has a mailbox store on it that i believe is installed by default.  since we keep no mailboxes on it, can it be deleted?  does the bridgehead functionality depend on it in any way?

Thanks

If you mean a frontend server, then if email flows through it then a store is required.

this is not a front end server.  this is where all smtp mail in and out flow to first.  all of our connectors point here.

You can only remove stores from a frontend server.
If email flows through it then you cannot remove the store at all.

i have had the store dismounted for some time now and it works fine.  do you still stick by that statement?
