I have email on windows 2003 server and it was working fine for several years. Just recently
it appears that the email stops working. I have to restart the server and it works fine for anywhere from a couple of hours to a day or two. Is there any malware or virus tools I can run on the server. Like combofix or superantivirus remover.

Thanks

How is your server HD space.  It will stop working when there is limited space.  That could be an issue.

There are various other factors as well. Such as virtual memory low , did you check for event id 333 , 2019 or 2020 etc. What are the error in the system log and application log. Is your machine x86 or x64 ?
What about other application when you try to start or stop ?
What if you try to restart information store service ?

My queries are based on the assumption that you have enough disk space available on the disk where you exchange log and database folder reside.
