Hi All,

I am having big problem !!
My AD/Exchange 2003, OS WinSvr 2003 is restarted two times a day unexpectly. When I check the Event log to the time before restart, I saw the Event ID 2206 MSExchangeMTA. Discription: The MTA database recovery operation is now checking queue:...

Then I found that MS Knowledge base http://support.microsoft.com/kb/840469
and it is said that I need to reinstall SMTP and MS exchange. It is strange that I need to reinstall all !!

If I reinstall those two, all my exchange config, mailboxes and users will be lost .. isn't it?

Any idea for that?

Yes, you will lose all the configuration. I would suggest to bring up another box and then migrate the mailboxes over to the new box then you can decommission the problem box.

Well, let me tell you a secret - MTA is no longer used in E2k3 extensively unless,

1) You have Exchange 5.5 server in your Organization
2) You have Fax Connector
3) You use a third-party utility that uses MTA.

If the above three are not applicable. Shut the MTA Service. This will not affect your normal mail-flow functionality at all.

Of course once the service is stopped, I believe the nasty errors should stop to appear.
