I have my exchange server 2003 and sometimes messages are queued in System Manager - Message Queue (local delvery not ready).

I usually restart the server and restart the SMTP services. It will be fine then but this has been happening alternate days. I checked the event viewer and noticed the following error

The MAPI call 'OpenMsgStore' failed with the following error:
The attempt to log on to the Microsoft Exchange Server computer has failed.
The MAPI provider failed.
Microsoft Exchange Server Information Store

there could be a few possibilities
are there any other exchange errors in the application log?
when this happens, does all mail delivery fail or just internal?

It sounds like you may have hit the Exchange Database limit and the store is dismounting.

Please examine your Logs for Exchange errors relating to Exchange and the Database Size.

You can set the registry to make the store larger if you haven't already:

If you already have hit the 75Gb limit, then you will need to archive mail to reduce the virtual store size or you can reduce the mailstore retention to further reduce the size:

The Decimal Value of 18 means 18Gb, so you have plenty of room to grow and that is the default value for Exchange 2003 SP2.

Use the wizard (if you prefer) and set it to 36 and that should double the capacity of the database before it dismounts again due to being too big.

What sizes are your .edb and .stm (priv1.edb / priv1.stm)?

Okay - so you have about 34Gb of Database size - but then we need to remove the amount of space identified in Event ID 1221 in the application event log (2 entries - one for each database).

Yes - if you increase the decimal value to 36 that should sort you.
