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?

This is because the account that has access to the mailbox has been disabled.

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"
