Preserve your mail!

If your running Exchange, and you want to make sure your mail will be available if the mail server crashes, I would recommend having an external server collect your mail, and offer it to your server via POP3. Then you can use MS POP3 Collector, or my new personal preference use Chimera's version (costs something, but worth it), and let it download the email for you. True, that mail server could fall over, but thats what you pay them for, to have really good mail servers, with expensive failovers.

Try Chimera EFS, and let it download your catchall pop account, and let Exchange deliver the emails based on recipient address's to your exchange mail boxes (happens automatically).

Don't forget to buy the version of Symantec Antivirus for SBS that comes with an Exchange Antivirus package, it will be worth it!
