Well that looks like you have problems with your RAID controller or attached hard disks. Do you have an Adaptec utility which allows you to view the RAID config on MailServer?

The server is just telling you that there is a bad block on the Hard drive - that's not unusual - to be on the safeside you might want to run  chkdsk on the drive

it is actually a fujitsu siemens server and model is tx200r , so it is an hardware error as per your suggestion. i need to look for the adpatec utility for this server. this is an old server 6 years back and it has got one utility called server view software where we can gater the health of the server, is it better to run that as well? my worry is it is our production server with no redundancy. in case if the software is not available which is the other alternate solution apart from chkdsk

I would certainly run the hardware health check and potentially look at a migration project to new hardware if the server is that old I suspect there is no warranty on it either?

One of the most crucial things right now though also is making sure you are getting good backups!
