Default SMTP Virtual server

I am having a problem with Microsoft 2003 SBS server. Since yesterday morning I have had problems with running out of disk space.

I cannot establish what is using up all the space but I have noticed that there are a numbere of 'Default SMTP Virtual Servers' created that I did not create. Could this be causing my problem?

Have you checked you BADMAIL directory, the default location is

C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\vsi 1\BadMail

Sometimes this can get full especially if you are getting lots of undeliverable messages.

To resolve this upgrade to at least service pack 1 of exchange as this 'facility' is removed

Yes I have already cleared out the 'BadMail' folder - I had that problem in the past.

I have used Spacemonger in the past to determine which files and folders have consumed all the drive capacity. This may indicate the culprit.

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=spacemonger&btnG=Google+Search

It is not as flexible/bloated as TreeSize Pro but it is tiny, requires just one executable and 1.4.1 is free.

I have also had problems with log files (in some cases up to 10gb) in IIS ans SQL server causing problems.

How do you know that exchange is causing the problem and not just the application that first reported it?

I am not sure if Exchange is causing the problem - I was just offering that information in case it maigh have been of use.

The log files could be the problem - where do I find them?
