Event ID 12002 in Exchange 2003

I get a lot of Event ID 12002 codes in my Exchange Application Log.

Now i found a very handy KB article;

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/838414

But that doesn't work i've already applied SP beyond that hotfix and all i get is an error message when i try to run it.

So does anyone have any other ideas or things i could try?

Thats what I am thinking. Looks like a reasonably good option at this point.
a) this will take the corrupted items out of mailbox database.
b) hopefully this will stop the event id's

Did you find out the mail item which is corrupted ?

If you did  - then you can use MFCMAPI to delete it.

Hi ,
Had the same issue and applied the hotfix.
But it worked for me only after the reboot of the server.
Did you reboot after the hotfix install ?

I can't instal the hotfix as i get an error message that says its not for the service pack i'm using.

I'm on version 6.5.7638.1

@Sunnyc7 the list is huge and i mean huge i reackon 100+ messages so what i'd need to do is find and delete every single message listed?  Some say from a person but without a subject going to amke it very hard to find the messag.

is this for one user or multiple ?
if all messages are for one user - easiest thing to do would be to exmerge the data out into a PST - and out of the mailbox.

I've looked at about half a dozen of them and they so far are one user.

So what xmerge out his entire mailbox into a PST.  Delete the mailbox, recreate a new one and import them back in again?
