Imap4 keeps crashing and restarting on Exchange 2007 SP1
Posted on 2009-04-10
two days ago in the middle of the night while no changes were being made the Imap4 service began crashing with the following error:
Faulting application Microsoft.Exchange.Imap4.exe, version 22.214.171.124, time stamp 0x47427b4b, faulting module KERNEL32.dll, version 6.0.6001.18000, time stamp 0x4791ada5, exception code 0xe053534f, fault offset 0x000000000002649d, process id 0x%9, application start time 0x%10.
and is followed by a Worker process exiting message. It does restart on its own but it is happening very often, sometimes multiple times a minute.
I have tried to revert back to the backup config but that didn't help. I found some other posts on how turning logging off and on sometimes worked but it hasn't for me.
This is running on windows 2008 server with two exchange 2007 servers (one is the CAS and the other is the mailbox server).
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for any advise.
