Exchange 2007 - Enable Legacy Mailbox in Backup Exec 12

From: enterprise_support@symantec.com [mailto:enterprise_support@symantec.com]

The key to enable Exchange 2007 Legacy Mailbox:

Location : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Symantec\Backup Exec For Windows\Backup Exec\Engine\ESE

Create Dword:  E2K7_MBOX

Hex Value:  1

Recycle BE services

Tools => BE services => Restart All Services


When backing up the individual mailboxes use GRT backup.

To disk is fastest for backup and restore.  Leave at least 2 copes on disk if there is enough space for it.

You can also create a job to disk and then an automatic to tape job.


ONLY do the following if you want to backup using the older MAPI type backup which is very slow:

Go to Tools => Options => Microsoft Exchange => Check the box which states Legacy Mailbox [Not recommended] => Click Ok
