Scanning an Exchange server for a virus that spreads via email? What could go wrong?

It deletes the EDB file and then lots of people shout at you.

I would say how did the emails get that far anyway but this was back in 2000 anyway so I suppose that answers that.

I've never deleted an EDB file but I have had an old boss add an extra drive to the Exchange server and then proceed to import the RAID config. Oops.
