Exchange server 2003 mail service stops working about once a week and needs to be rebooted to start working properly.

I defragged the database using eseutil /d utility and it reduced the size of the db considerably, but its still having problems in that about once a week email stops working, to get email back up and working I shutdown the services; MTA stacks and Information Store and then shutdown the Exchange server and restart the DC and then when the DC is fully up I start up the Exchange server and email starts working again. Can anyone tell me what the problem is and how to resolve it?
Using Server 2003 with Exchange 2003, DC is Server 2003 on a separate server, all workstations are XP Pro.
