Exchange IMS keeps falling over!!!!

By bex ·
My client has a pdc that has a lot on it. I'm gonna change that soon. But until recently they were receiving e-mail quite nicely from their ISP, when someone tried to send them a large attachement and Exchange crashed. After rebooting the server they called on yours truely. The q's were building on the ISP servers and could not get through to their Exchange server. I've stopped and restarted almost every Exchange Service I can find and just as the messages begin to download the IMS service stops. I start it again and it stops just as quickly. Any ideas? Please help!!!!!

check your gateways make sure that you only have 1 default gateway, because if a exchange server has more that 1 when it's fails over to the second gateway it never returns to the default until you reboot. been ther done that.

To figure out why the IMS keeps stopping, you need to look in the Event Viewer and see what error codes are there. Very likely, it keeps choking on the same old message and you'll need to delete that message from the queue before it will start up and stay running.

The other thing to look for is drive space - many Exchange problems start when drive space gets low.

Exchange is fuuny with disk space if you want to clean out the disk space under the tools options in the Exchange administator there aree tolls for moving the mail and cleaning out thee mail folder you also can check to see how big of a file one canrecieve
