3 times in the last week I've arrived in the office to find our email not working. When I log on to the Exchange 2003 server, there is a yellow warning icon in the system tray notifying me of low virtual memory. I restart the server and everything is OK. In trying to find out why this is happening, I've discovered that the Mail store is 82GB (well above the 75GB limit of Exchange Standard). Apart from asking users to manage their mailboxes, what else can I do to reduce the size of the mail store?
I need this server to continue functioning for a few more months while we discuss Hosted vs On-premise Exchange 2013.
It is a Windows Server 2003 Standard running Exchange 2003 Standard. We have all latest updates installed, 4GB RAM. I have 3-6GB virtual memory set. And I'm using the /3GB and /userva switches in the boot.ini. There is a few more than 60 users in total. I have deleted items retention for 1 week. Logging on for track & trace, and a 2GB mailbox size limit.
Thanks in advance
