If you have not already done so and if you have spare drives, can you move the exchange info store database to a different drive from the operating system? Can you move the transaction log files to a different disk from the info store database? Are you using a RAID disk subsystem as this will give you added performance?

Here is a thorough article on exchange performance:-

Can you give some more details on your server hardware, load and network infrastructure?

i think I may be steering you all in the wrong direction. The issue may be network more than anything. I checked the firewall and saw ultrostrojan from many clients trying to connec to the mail server. This may be the issue.

Ok then you really need to scan all clients and server with av to clean then....create a scheduled task for complete systemscans.

Okay now my issue just got complicated. I just got a event id. 9582 in the event log. I pulled up the kb from microsoft, the fix may be as simple as rebooting the server I am interested in the dns settings. What should I check. Should I flush the dns cache?

okay since i have exch 2000 running on win2k standard I was only apply to apply the HeapDecommit" fix as specified in KB 315407. Everything seems to be okay except I now get the following error when I reboot:

Event id: 116

EXOLEDB
Microsoft Exchange OLEDB was unable to initialize event system correctly.  Support for store event may have been disabled. HRESULT = 0x8004010f.


The other message I got was

Event id: 8260
MSExchangeAL

Could not open LDAP session to directory 'server1' using local service credentials. Cannot access Address List configuration information.  Make sure the server 'server1' is running.  DC=gmmllc,DC=com

server1 was an  old server that I took down. I update the recipient list with a new server and I ran an update now. I did not run a rebuild and I do not restart the exchange services after I made this change. Is this okay.
