I understand the benefits of not using Personal Folders, but my question is
this: If a corrupt file (email) is sent to a mailbox, how (if at all) will
that affect the Exchange Server?
Exchange stores everything in a database (the type of database changes from
5.0 to 5.5, but it's still a database), meaning that corrupt messages are
stored as corrupt discrete cells.
I use the term discrete to point out that it should have no effect on
neighboring messages. The edb database structure does, however, have some
corruption problems of its own. You need to be sure that the hardware
you're using will not allow an unverified write back cache to function,
since a failure in the write back cache could cause corruption.
But that's a whole different thread...

I plan to switch to Exchange. But my users got used to
keeping their messages in MS Outlook Personal Folder
files. As far as I understand if I start using Exchange
(2000) all theire messages will sit on than Stores of this
server. So this .pst file these users will need no more?
This sounds 'unusual' to some extent.. .
Please who can help me to 'swap' my logical stupidity?
