This means that there is a Shadow copy which was taken at a time when there was a virus in your Exchange database (i.e. in an Email).  As long as it is not in the live database I don't think you have too much to worry about.  Run a full scan against Exchange if you are worried.

Your normal anti-virus software will not be able to scan Exchange, you need AV software designed to scan Exchange (which will use API's to get access without locking the files).

Do you have Exchange specific Email?  Your normal AV supplier might do an Exchange component if not....

the symantec stated it to me...
endpoint automatically recognizes exchange environments and does not scan that databases.
but i was wondering if that exception was for the scheduled scans and manual scans or something similar.

OK - looks like Endpoint doesn't support Exchange scanning.  Ideally you want some sort of scanning on your mailflow, either an internal solution such as Messagelabs or an system running on the Exchange box such as GFI Mail Security.
