Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Exchange server uses the JET database engine to store its data. JET is the same engine which Microsoft Access uses, only this is a much larger and more powerful version of it.

Basically all databases store their data in a tabular format. There are rows and columns. In Exchange the columns are simply named things like MessageId, To, From, CC, BCC, DateSend, DateReceived, Headers, Subject, Message, Attachments, etc.
