Backup Exec 10.0 will not backup disabled mailboxes?

We have a server that is running backup exec 10.0 and exchange.  There is currently a problem with backing up disabled mailboxes, however I understand that there is a hotfix for exchange that could resolve this problem.  Does anybody know anything about it?

You cannot backup Mailboxes that are disabled,marked for deletion or hidden in the GAL using BEWS
Glen KnightCommented:
This is because the account that has access to the mailbox has been disabled.
You can try this: http://support.microsoft.com/?id=278966

There's a tool out there to do this for a bunch of users called nomas.exe...apparently, all you need to do is grant the "SELF account Associated External Account and Full Mailbox Access permissions to the mailbox using Active Directory Users & Computers. For complete steps refer to KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/278966"
