Umm

There isn't any real day-to-day administrative tasks as in logfiles etc.

I would advise you get you (and maybe your staff) on a basic training course to understand the basics of your Exchange deployment, and then maybe look @ a third party to help with any issues you get.

You don't need to maintain the log files. Make sure that you have a full backup every week or every day if the backup windows allows it. That way, the logs will be flushed automatically and in case of a DR, you have a full backup to fall back on.

You have to backup the data (mailbox and so on) using the proper tools.
AD is a pre for Exchange and loads of things are stored there, but the mails & Exchange data self have to be backed up properly

What you're asking is too much of a RTFM question. You have to read the document, take a training and after ask question that may be left unclear.

If you're tlaking about the Exchange log (as Database logs) you SHOULD NOT delete them by any other mean than a regular backup.

For what's i've read yo ushould more focus on learning Exchange and how it works than deleting log files
