Since Exchange Server supports IMAP, what about my previous suggestion about
allowing an IMAP backup set in Retrospect, so that you could use Retrospect
to backup an entire IMAP server hierarchy. This would eliminate the need to
shut down mailservers such as Exchange Server and ASIP Mail, plus it would
be a much more functional backup, allowing you to select individual IMAP
folders and messages for restore instead of the entire mail database.
