Exchange Internet Email problem

By rgould ·
I'm running Exchange 5.5 SP3 on an NT 4.0 SP6a server. I'm having problems with the Internet Mail connector "breaking" overnight. I'm wondering if it is backup-related: we use Veritas' Backup Exec (latest version) on the same server, which backs up to tape every night. When I come in to check in the morning, mail is often down. Simply stopping and restarting the internet mail service brings it back up. Anyone care to try answering this one?

This one may be an answer (wqorkaround, or whatever)...
In Veritas you can run a script before and after the backup, create one that stops all of the Exchange services (net stop servicename) and on that starts them again afterwards (net start servicename). This would also give you the benefit of a slimmer chance of email coruption after restore.

Hope this helps.
