Possibly an issue with your transaction logs.  How many logs do you have currently, and when was your last full backup?

Check the following reference:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/830408

Try the Exchange tool listed in that article to check the issue.

What version of Exchange are you running?

Sorry, let me be more clear.  Is it SP1, SP2, any roll-ups?  How patched is the environment?

I ran the MS exchange troubleshooting assistant:

here is the report:

One or more MSExchangeIS 5000 events with error code 0x80004005 have been detected in the Application log. This indicates one or more of the following possible issues: incorrect service account, missing SeSecurityPrivilege permissions, or incorrect group membership.

Policytest.exe is part of Exchange setup files. If you have Exchange setup. Search Policytest.exe.

Once you find it. Goto CMD and type

policytest.exe > result.txt

now open result.txt in notepad and check if anywhere Right Not Found mentioned. If found, run domainprep from Exchange server.

i ran the policytest here is the result:

C:\>policytest

This tool will check every domain controller in the local
domain to see if the "Manage auditing and security logs"
privilege granted to the "Exchange Enterprise Servers"
group by DomainPrep has replicated to that DC.  If the
policy change has not yet replicated to all DCs, then
you should avoid making policy changes on any DC that
has not received those changes yet.

You must have Domain Admin rights to run this tool
successfully.  If you see an error that says:
  !! LsaEnumerateAccountRights returned error 5 !!
then you don't have permission to open the LSA on the
given DC.


===============================================
Local domain is "kareproducts.co.za" (KAREPRODUCTS)
Account is "KAREPRODUCTS\Exchange Enterprise Servers"
========================
  DC      = "KAREMAIL"
  In site = "Default-First-Site-Name"
  Right found:  "SeSecurityPrivilege"
========================
  DC      = "KAREFINANCE"
  In site = "Default-First-Site-Name"
  !! LsaOpenPolicy returned error 5 !!
========================
  DC      = "FINANCESERVER"
  In site = "Default-First-Site-Name"
  Right found:  "SeSecurityPrivilege"

please assist
