exchange server crash

By mostyn_t ·
On an nt network using outlook on the desktop
and exchange server. Frequently the exchange server hangs and causes outlook to hang.
A reboot of the exchange server rectifies the situation, but not really a satisfactory solution !!
NT is SP6a, outlook 2000.

A little more information would be helpful...

Specifically, what version of Exchange and whether you're seeing any Event Viewer messages that might give a clue. Also, check Server Manager right after it hangs to see what services might have stopped.

If you can add this information to your question, it will be helpful in assisting you.

Also, what other things might be running on the server? Backup solutions, antivirus, attachment archiving?

With above answer check in event view for any errors and check free the diskspace/memory in the system.

Also, when this happens, does any process increase to (around) 100% CPU usage? When it does it, can you manually stop the Exchange services? When it happens, does the whole server hang (i.e. Can you open Notepad or something else? If not, will the NUM LOCK key toggle the light?) Need more info...
