Our email server has stopped allowing users to connect via OWA (either through Outlook or the web interface). All services appear to be running fine and nothing else has changed on the server.

I am getting the following error log (with domain/ip address removed). Any suggestions?

did your database still mount?

it seems it doesnt look like the root of the problem.

i think is the database corruption but just a quick guess.

if you think it is CAS, you can quickly reinstall CAS by re run the setup again.


mailbox server will be a bit tricky.


Also try to reboot the server first before any action.
maybe a reboot will fix your issues.

plan what you think it should and talk to others to make sure they think your plan is feasible.

the error stats that the mailbox doesn't exist or log in failed for it, can you ensure that the mailbox is not disabled and the user can log in using his user name on any domain machine.

Thanks for the responses. The mailbox had indeed been dismounted and would fail when i tried to mount it without any useful error messages. When i looked at the file it was very very close to 40GB so i wondered if there was a limit on the folder size. A bit of googling around and i found that there was a registry change that adjusted the maximum database size (although i couldnt find what the default size should be). After making the change the mailbox instantly mounted (without any restarts or requests to mount) so i'm a bit suspicous if that actually fixed it. It was quite late at this point so didnt really care as long as it was working!)

So for the time being at least, its fixed!
