On our exchange server (windows 2000 latest servicepack and exchange 2000 latest servidepack) we have a big problem

The following services are stopping every 15 and 30 minutes.

The following services are stopping:

WWW publishing services
Exchange pop3
Network news protocol
Exchange imap4
IIS admin service
SMTP protocol
NNtpsvc service

Event id 7031 with category none is displayed for all of these services

On our exchange server symantec brightmail (against spam) is running. The badmail folder is emptied.
On brightmail the server is rejecting spam messages (maybe it is sending the rejected spam to the bad mail folder, have to investigate that)
We now are logging the smtp service to see what kind of mail is flowing around

Any suggestions ?
