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

Re: Restoring EDBs...

We had trouble with Exchange Server 4.5. I remember running some DB repair program that took 4 or 5 hours to scan the DB half a dozen times to get it into a state that Exchange Server was happy to load.

I was pissing about with some VB for some web app and discovered VB would allow you to dump a whole exchange DB and read everyone's emails and I think I could have used that to rebuild a corrupted DB better than the MS repair program but never have the courage to try it in action. Some nice reading while repairing the DB mind.
