Exchange Log- what type of information get stored in Logs . will it possible to purge every day . what is the production level practice for exchange log   management
I am in the process of having best combination  of exchange servr backup

1.Daily - mail box level backup
2.Sunday - Mail store (db) backup

we are running our exchange box on the VM level . we are getting daily VM image backup of exchange server.

I hope above combination will work for one mail box to entire mail box recovery scenarios    1 and 2
VM level backup will help us to rebuild the server level issues or patch update testing etc

VM snapshot is not recommended for Exchange, so better stop it, you just need to take Exchange DB backup.  Question about logs? Read this http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/Exchange-transaction-log

Backing up db and logs are important. You can do incremental during weekdays and full during weekends.
