Hi,

Running Exchange 2003 SP2 on Windows Server 2003 SP2 here. Only one server.

Xeon 3.2 Ghz, 4 GB RAM, single RAID5 array, around 70 users.

For the last week we had intermittent problems with messages waiting in the

"Local delivery" queue for a long time before being delivered. When it

happens, I get events 508 & 509 from ESE in the application event log.

I suspected Symantec SMSMSE but the problem occured even when all Symantec

services were stopped.

Any ideas ?

Thank you.

When you reference event IDs you should post the entire event log entry

because few of us have memorized all event IDs or want to look them up for

you.

These Events are about queries to the .ebd files being successful BUT taking

more than 60 seconds.

I found out. MS Search Server was indexing the public folders during the day

and it was to much for our single server.

To further rule out SMSMSE, (A/V), can you navigate to the registry. Look a

thte Workaround with this article. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/264731,

specifically, Look for the following key in the registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIS\VirusScan

and set "Enabled" to a value of 0. Stop and restart the exchange services.

Just turning off the services will still leave some "hooks" in the Store.

Also, check the TP Chimney- this link has useful information:

Are you receiving other errors or warnings in the App log?
