We're using Exchange 2000 SP3 on Windows 2000 Advanced Server with 4 GB of 


It was working ok until Friday. After Friday, inetinfo.exe's memory usage 
started to increase rapidly. When it reaches 1.6 GB memory (the process itself 
in 15-30 minutes) local and remote delivery stops.


I read over the following articles which i think points my problem.


XADM: Message Tracking May Cause the Inetinfo.exe Process to Show Very High 
Memory Use 


XADM: Inetinfo Process Consumes a High Amount of Memory When You Start the SMTP 
Service on a Cluster Server 
 (our server is not a cluster server)


I disabled the message tracking and installed "824282 
<>  September 2003 
Exchange 2000 Server Post-Service Pack 3 Rollup".


Still not working. 


My server is no on cluster server but should i try to delete temp folders in 
system mailbox? (the second article listed above)


Any ideas?
