We recently added ssl access to our Exchange 2003 box.  Ever since, the w3svc logs have exploded in size.  Is it ok to turn off the iis logging on the Exchange server?  Is there any reason to keep it running?

Is it ok to turn off the iis logging on the Exchange server? - Its fine to turn it Off
Is there any reason to keep it running? - These logs can help you troubleshoot issues regards to any client conectivity through IIS (Like Active Sync, etc).

Why not if you have space issues take backup everyday and purge after a week or so ?
