Anyway before troubleshooting a problem it is always good to fully patch exchange server.
I'm guessing you have Exchange 2007 (you have not mention the version anywhere) , so the latest updates are SP3 Rollup 2.

Best practice analyzer for exchange is also a great tool. You can find it in EMC in tools section.
