The Backup Exec (V10)on our Exchange 2003 server has been reporting each morning that the overnight backup has failed due to some 54 e-mail items being skipped i.e. :- Backed up 351271 mail messages in 3988 folders in 100 mailbox(es) 8 corrupt files were backed up 54 items were skipped. Processed 25,385,029,559 bytes in 5 hours, 41 minutes, and 21 seconds. Throughput rate: 70.9 MB/min All 54 skipped items are one and the same mail item, which is/are apparently stored in the SMTP mailbox viz :- Access denied to file SMTP (CLMNT6-{3099996F-D4BC-4AC3-A025-714CCA35EC6C}) [{3099996f-d4bc-4ac3-a025-714cca35ec6c}]?TempTable#1?#0?Fwd: African Finance. The item \CLMNT6Microsoft Exchange MailboxesSMTP (CLMNT6-{3099996F-D4BC-4AC3-A025-714CCA35EC6C}) [{3099996f-d4bc-4ac3-a025-714cca35ec6c}]?TempTable#1?#0????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????Fwd: African Finance in use - skipped. V-79-57344-33928 - Access is denied. On checking however, there is no e-mail messages stored in the SMTP mailbox. The SMTP mailbox is apparently used by the mail transport of Exchange Server 2003 as a temporary holding place for various messages as they pass through the system. I have completed a consistency check and defrag of the Exchange Store in a futile attempt to seek-out-and-destroy this/these e-mail message/s. Anyone got any ideas please?

    There is no chance that this could be an archived folder that is password protected. We had someting similiar with our back ups and the issue was a password protected archive folder that could not be accessed.
