Exchange Error

I keep receiving this error on Exchange Server. We are runing on Windows 2003, Exchange Server Ent 2003 SP2.
Logon Failure on database "First Storage Group\Misc" - Windows 2000 account NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM; mailbox /O=DLB/OU=WANAMASSA/cn=Recipients/cn=EAdmin.
Error: -2147221231

I checked the EAdmin account and it is disabled.  

Anyone know what I can do to resolve these issue?

The fact that the account is disabled is the cause of the error message.
If you want to get rid of the error, then in the properties of the disabled account find the permission "Self" and grant it the right "External Access Account" (or words to that effect, it is External something). DO NOT CHANGE ANY OTHER PERMISSIONS.
Then apply/Ok out. The error will go away in about two hours.


If I delete the account, would that be a problem with Exchange? I am not sure what the account was for, was created before me.

Based on the name, it wouldn't appear to be a problem deleting this. It does not look like an Exchange created system mailbox. If you're curious enough, you could enable it and see if there are contents in it and figure out exactly what it is.
Just a hunch, but EAdmin looks like someone created it... ExchangeAdmin, EAdmin for short...
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

I was not able to find the option for External Access Account, or any other words related to External, but the problem seem to have disappeared, I do not see it any longer.
