I am administrating an old Small Business Server 2003.
For some strange reason the mailbox store dismounts every secon day.
When this happens I can simply mount the store again without any problems.

The Exchange database is located at E:\EXCHSRV\MDBDATA\PRIV1.EDB.

1) I can confirm that there is plenty of available space on drive E
2) The database is only 10GB so its not the famous 18gig limitation!

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    From memory, there is a registry key that needs ammended to use up to 18GB.

    Is there any event in system and application logs?

    What is the exact time it does this?

    Guys! sorry for using your time.
    This error shows my lack of knowledge!
    I assumed that the 18gig limit was per database EDB + STM.
    The total amount was beyond this limit causing an imidiately dismount!
    I will expand this limit ASAP.
