Song of the Day – Day 3

Tuesday we all hopped on buses from our various downtown hotels and were taken to the Microsoft campus. I believe the bus drivers were all instructed to drive us around the entire facility to see the entire layout. Lots of buildings – separated by parking lots, soccer fields, baseball fields, and more parking lots. The SBS team spent the morning with the other Windows server MVP’s being briefed. The afternoon was spent with the SBS Dev team, with them asking us questions all day. Personally, I wrapped up the day by attending my first Seder meal with Steven Teiger (SBS … Continue reading Song of the Day – Day 3

Song of the Day – Day 2

MVP Sunday. After the get together on Saturday night, I expected everyone to sleep in on Sunday morning. But, not SBS’ers!

Script to clean out the Bad mail directory

Added 6/22/2004: Here is a link to a Microsoft page with their recommendation for cleaning out the BadMail folder: If the ..\Program Files\ExchSrvr\Mailroot\vsi 1\BadMail is filling up with lot’s of files (.bad, .bdr., .bdp), you can simply delete them. However, it has been noted that if you have thousands of these files, simply deleting them may cause Exchange to slow to a crawl for awhile. It is therefore recommended to create a batch/command script that will clear this directory out. You can then schedule this scriupt to run daily or weekly, as required. You may ask why this script … Continue reading Script to clean out the Bad mail directory
