Hi,

Does the Exchange 2003 is updated with the Service Pack 2? If not, then update it first.

Does there is any third party antispam application on the server? If yes, then check with the venodr for any update.

Hope this helps,
Shree

Using Symantec System Recovery and BackupExec is installed but no active jobs. Also use Symantec Endooint Protection. Where should I look for these logs and what Should I be looking for?

if you could have a look at the logs and look for "source" or "event source" regarding Microsoft Exchange Server and see if there is any other logs against that
