Exchange 2003 store.exe problem

After Installing service pack 2 for exchange server I keep getting the following email from the server:

"The store.exe process is allocating more memory than usual.

Check to see if you are having problems with e-mail. If so, stop and then restart the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service.

You can disable this alert or change its threshold by using the Change Alert Notifications task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting taskpad."

I have SBS 2003.  We have 12 email users and the alert for store.exe private bytes is set to 104857600.  30 day average is at 149,000,000 plus.

I have tried stopping and restarting the store and re-booting the server.  Email is working fine.  

Should I be conscerned?  Or should I just set the bytes higher?

Thanks,
Jay

store.exe is designed to take as much memory as it requires. It should then release the memory back to the system when something else requires it.
Personally I would ignore the message and probably even disable it. You only need to be concerned if the memory use remains high and store.exe will not give it back. If the server appears to be working correctly, then leave it alone.

Thanks for the info to both of you.

When I go to processes, it shows that the current memory use for Store.exe is about 300,000 K.  I have 1GB of memory on the server, so about a third of it is being used on store.exe.  The total available physical memory is hovering around 100,000 K.  

Should I consider upgrading the ram on the server if it hits 400,000 K on store.exe?  I have reset my alert to this level using this logic....does that sound right?

Again, I am experiencing no real problems with the server.  Thanks for your help.
