Did you make any changes to the script recently ? This error normally
comes when there is a syntax error in the script. The best thing to do
is, stop and restart the event service. This will re-initialize all
mailboxes that are running the script. If there is an error it will log
that in the application log, and will also tell you exactly in which
mailbox and which line in the script has the error.

We run an autoaccept script to process meeting requests on every users
mailbox. The script is attached to each 
user's inbox to kick off every time something is delivered to the inbox.

Twice in the last month, the scripts have stopped working with these
messages (many many occurrences) appearing in the application log:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: MSExchangeES
Event Category: General 
Event ID: 25
Date: 11/20/2002
Time: 9:18:55 AM
User: N/A
Computer: GW-HO80
Script failed with a run time or syntax error on the last event. Since
the script was not modified since the last failure, the script will not
be run again until the error is fixed. Please refer to agent log for
more information about the failure. 

Event Type: Error
Event Source: MSExchangeES
Event Category: General 
Event ID: 11
Date: 11/20/2002
Time: 8:19:17 AM
User: N/A
Computer: GW-HO80
A fatal error (0x8000ffff) occurred in an IExchangeEventSink while
processing message [Subject = "intranet"]. 

Does anyone know how we can troubleshoot this?  I'm getting tired of
reloading scripts! I have seen a few knowledgebase articles that have
not been much help! 
We have been running this script for over a year, this is the 3rd time
this has occurred.
