In the Alert manager, under the Service Logon Settings, Microsoft Exchange is Greyed out and I've looked everywhere, the settings is the same as the other backup servers I manage, but I can't figure out why it's greyed out, any help will be greatly appreciated.

Nope, none of my servers have Outlook installed on them and Alert manager has the Microsoft Exchange part enabled except this one server

strange, first it is grey'd out, and then it is not there at all. I've worked with ARCserve since version 1.0 and this is the first I've heard of either. In fact I don't even understand how it is possible for it to not be there since that is what the Service Logon Settings window is all about. It has the left pain for Impersonation and the right for Exchange.

Since you installed it from the ARCserve Backup 15.0 DVD  I know it has it right, so that seems to leave something environmental with the system. Perhaps a prior install or an install of some other product. Such as the older versions of CA antivirus Inoculan that also used Alert.

Check to see if there is an entry for Alert Manager under Start Programs. In 15.0 Alert has been fulling integrated into ARCserve and is accessed via the Manager. In earlier versions it was only available via Start Programs.

If it does show up try "Windows Install Clean Up" a nice little utility for removing old programs.

From the Help:
"
The Email option is used to send Email messages to specific users when a virus is detected. If the Microsoft Exchange Client is installed, Alert will support only the Microsoft Exchange Server.
"

Try installing the Microsoft Exchange Client.
