Exchange resource usage issue

Posted on 2011-05-05

We've got a client with a Server 2008 machine with 28GB of RAM. The server has a few other packages on but is the only Exchange server in the domain and it holds all the mail roles. It's running Exchange 2007 and has been fine for quite a while until last week when we went to check something on Exchange console and an 'out of memory' error popped up when we tried to fire up the EMC. We checked the task manager and found store.exe to be using 23GB of memory. The same thing has happend twice more now and we are unable to use EMC unless we restart the store.exe service which resolves the problem but then starts to crawl up again.
I know that store.exe is designed to use as much memory as it needs and should give it bakc to other processes when needed but this is excessive to use this much and then give that error.
I've compared it to other servers of around the same spec and they use nowhere near this amount.
Any help would be great.
