Description

FYI: Microsoft has released details about nasty bug with Exchange Server 2003 & SP1.

"When you try to move or to remove a folder that contains many subfolders in Outlook, the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service stops responding, and event 9673 is recorded"

I can't believe this made it past beta testing.

Most viruses these days use spoofed email addresses. As such, using an Anti-Virus product which automatically notifies the perceived sender of a message it believes is infected may well cause more harm than good. Someone who did not actually send you a virus may receive the notification and scramble their support staff to find an infection which never existed in the first place. Suggest such notifications be disabled by whomever is responsible for your AV, or at least that the idea is considered. --
