Will Exchange 2003 use SQL Server for storing data?

just an FYI.

Oracle implemented & upgrade their email system into Warick County Council
in the UK .  the council lost email for two weeks.

this was about 2 years ago.

the only thing microsoft have an advantage on is  two facts - MS SQL is
simpler than.  Microsoft know how to do correct patch releases. (something
oracle don't know squat about)
