Exchange 2007 outgoing mail crashes intermittently

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
About once or twice a week, my outgoing mail crashes on Exchange 2007 (on a SBS 2008 Server), and no mail can go out.  I have 8 Exchange users on this network.  I used to reboot the server to fix it.  Now through trial and error (mostly error) I have found if I restart the DNS Server service, and then the Microsoft Exchange Information Store,  this solves the problem.  But I have no idea why.  At first I thought it was my Avast SBS anti-virus program (because I had to restart that service too) and it was happening almost every day.  So I switched to Trend Micro Worry Free and the problem only occurs once or twice a week now.   But of course that is once or twice too much.  Please help, people are getting really frustrated.
