I am noticing that Exchange is doing a database cleanup and defrag every night. I would like to  know where I can change the time.
This is a Server 2003 w/ Exchange 2003 as a member server

For Exchange 2003:
1. Start Exchange System Manager.
2. Expand Administrative Groups, expand Your_Administrative_Group, and then expand Servers.
3. Expand Your_Server_Name, and then expand Your_Storage_Group.
4. Right-click the mailbox store object that you want, and then click Properties.
5. Click the Database tab.
6. In the Maintenance interval box, click an appropriate schedule. (Note: Click Customize if you want to customize the schedule.)
7. Click OK.
8. Exit Exchange System Manager.

For Exchange 2007:
1.Run the Exchange Management Console.
2.Navigate to the Server Configuration node in the Console tree, then locate and select the Mailbox node beneath it.
3.Make sure the correct Exchange server is highlighted in the Result pane and you’ll then see the storage groups and databases on this server within the Work pane.
4.Right-click the relevant database and choose Properties from the context menu.
5.From the resulting mailbox database property window, notice the Maintenance schedule: option on the General tab.  This allows you to configure when online database maintenance will be run.  You have a choice of several pre-defined time periods or the option of a custom schedule.
