Access is denied to SMTP mailbox in Exchange 2003

We are running backup exec10 backing up exchange 2003, and are getting the following message. It seems this relates to the built in exchange smtp mailbox.

Backup- \\XMANSVR\Microsoft Exchange Mailboxes V-79-57344-33928 - Access is denied.
Access denied to file SMTP (XMANSVR-{02F2F09E-73E3-4BE3-8705-6265EE2EEC85}) TempTable#1#12Stuff to do.
V-79-57344-33928 - Access is denied.
Access denied to file SMTP (XMANSVR-{02F2F09E-73E3-4BE3-8705-6265EE2EEC85}) TempTable#1#5Stuff to do.


Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Read through the BE Admin Guide - the section related to the Exchange Agent.
Pay particular attention to the suggestions when you choose to do mailbox backups.

The recommendation is to EXCLUDE the SMTP maiboxes.

I don't understand why you want SMTP backup?

It's recommanded not to backup SMTP IS store/mailbox

Hi Glen,

It is NOT recommended to run the backups using SMTP. Please run a normal backup and verify the results.
