i don't think it's the problem with the database since i've just restored my server to the previous days, while it was working properly, but the problem still exist. The Transport service stop automatically, the disk spacee is fine, the event log keep generating the same error.

Did you try running the

I've moved the Hub transport server to run on another server, but there is problem this time with edge transport server and the new hub transport server, it seem like the edge transport server and the hub transport. All the email send to outside is ok, but from outside to inside are queued on the edge transport, it won't push to the hub transport.

these are steps which i took to set them up:
1- install exchange hub transport on one server
2- Create new edge subscription from edge transport server and put it in the hub transport
3- set send connector
     1- company to Internet: FQDN=company.domain.com; Source server= Edge-server
     2- Inbound to Company: FQDN=hub-Server.domain.com; Source server=Edge-server
4- run start-edgesynchronization on hub transport server
5- I was waiting from 1 hour but the queue on edge transport server was not cleared.

anything i should do now? please advise....

I've found this event on the edge transport server:

Log Name:      Application
Source:        MSExchangeTransport
Date:          6/1/2009 5:46:33 PM
Event ID:      12014
Task Category: TransportService
Level:         Error
Keywords:      Classic
User:          N/A
Computer:      edge-serv1.amkcambodia.com
Description:
Microsoft Exchange couldn't find a certificate that contains the domain name ex-smtp.amkcambodia.com in the personal store on the local computer. Therefore, it is unable to support the STARTTLS SMTP verb for the connector edgesync - inbound to ho with a FQDN parameter of ex-smtp.amkcambodia.com. If the connector's FQDN is not specified, the computer's FQDN is used. Verify the connector configuration and the installed certificates to make sure that there is a certificate with a domain name for that FQDN. If this certificate exists, run Enable-ExchangeCertificate -Services SMTP to make sure that the Microsoft Exchange Transport service has access to the certificate key.

Try rebooting the servers as the cached configuration might not be cleared ....

Hello is there any update on this issue ?

amkcambodiaAuthor Commented:
the certificate is fine now. The way to fix the others thing is we installed the hub transport on other server and configure the new hub transport server to work with the edge transport server.

We have thought about this case might happen, and we also have prepared for this as we have been implementing the system backup regularly. However, after we experienced this problem we come to realize that no matter how far we restore back the system the problem still exist. This is very scary as we haven't identify what exactly was  the cause of this problem yet.

Yeah that is surely an issue and always we cannot restore the servers. If you have something for me do let me know. Byee for now.
