  I have come to find out in a round about way that several mailboxes in my Exchange Server 2003 have corrupt messages. Is there any way to fix or remove them from the server?

You will need to dismount the mailstore and run the following against the database:

eseutil /p (repairs the database)

eseutil /d (defragments the database)

isinteg -s servername -fix -test alltests (integrity checks the database - run as many times as it takes to see 0 errors and 0 fixes in the last line of output).
