Migration from exchange 2003 to 2010 done by another user. Now exchange logs are filling up the drive rapidly. Run a backup but makes no difference. Ran exchange user monitor but nothing is standing out. Server 2008. About to install sp1 as rpc requests running at 100%

Have you configured the backup correctly?  Please have a read of the following article for guidance about the VSS settings:

Make sure in your backup you are doing a full exchange backup and committing and flushing the logs

Are your corporate email signatures appalling?

Is it scary how unprofessional your email signatures look? Do users create their own terrible designs and give themselves stupid job titles? You can make this a lot easier for yourself by choosing an email signature management solution from Exclaimer today.

I will check this now.Having trouble getting the sp1 update on. I downloaded the update but it seems to run just a full install of exchange and doesn't mention sp1?

SP1 isn't lite!  It looks like a comelette install but that quite normal.  Lots of pre-requisites though :(

Yes - and when you have installed one - it tells you about another one you need!
