Hi im running windows server 2003 and as of lately the email stopped working. In my windows event logs under Applications I have erroe 3005 that has came up hundreds of times. The description says "Unexpected Exchange mailbox server error. Server:{server1.UnitedElevatorCorp.local} then the users email addres.HTTP status code [503]. Verify that the Exchange mailbox Server is working correctly."also the source of the error is "server Activesync.  I had the same problem yesterday with no email and I restarted the server and the email started working, but when I re started the server this morning the email didnt start working.  I also got 1 error "1003"  and the source was MSExchangeIS, saying "the disk is full for database  "First Storage Group\Mailbox Store(SERVER1)".  Attempting to unmount the database.    
        If there are any suggestions on how to fix this and get my email back working it would be greatly appreciated.

It looks to be you have run out of space on your disk to hold the Mailbox Store.

You may have three possible solutions:

1. Add another hard disk and increase the size of the current volume, try to mount the database and fix.repair if necessary.

2. Add another hard disk, Create another Storage Group on that hard disk and move some mailboxes there, specially the big ones.

3.  If you already have available space on another disk just create a Storage Group there and move few mailboxes there.

Try mounting the store after that to see if that helps!

Now about the ActiveSync errors, these are produced by devices trying to sync something you are having issues on the setup.  Most of the time is the Address Book.  Try changing the settings on the user's device and turn off everything but emails, keep trying syncing and the settings until the error pops again to find the offender.
