I belive that You have enabled database size support to 75GB in Exchange 2003 std edition with SP2. If yes, then i haven't come across any problem after enabling this registry tweak.

May be some more experts will help you

It is not a "hack" it is a feature included with exchange 2003 SP2. The registry change is how you control it because they didn't include a way to change it in the GUI.

I can see no reason why this would have caused the problems you are seeing.

You need answers to some more questions to find the root cause.
1. is it happening to all users or some users?
2. users on all stores on a specific store?
3. Is there a possibility that users are downloading mails using POP3 and removing the mails from the server?
4. Any mailbox management policy configured?
5. What is the mail item retention time set on the store? did you try to recover these missing items using "recover deleted items" section.?

Thanks,
Amit Aggarwal.
