exchange server corruption, moved to new mailbox store
Posted on 2006-03-29
Every now and then I do battle with IS corruption that makes the service stop. You might be able to run it for a few minutes but it crashes again. Started on one today at 9 AM EST. stopped SMTP, stopped groupshield.
Although it may be overkill, I've learned to just make a new mailbox store, move users messages over to it and stop using the old database, erase it.
What I also want to do is delete the pending spam messages that my SMTP server want's to bring in. Can I delete the SMTP user and how? How can I get at this.
Keep in mind that After stopping SMTP and GSE, I was able to mount the old database and do the move user command, so is there something that the SMTP mailbox has in it that corrupt and the source of the whole headache?
