Still don't know what version of Exchange this is.
If it's 2003 install/run the Exchange BPA and follow recommendations.
If not 2003:
Match #1.

Well, i do not know for sure,  hey have Windows 2000 5.0.2195 SP4
running with 3 gig of memory..
I have the standard limits set up. When i check Disk defragmenter i see
that indeed the disk is very fragmented. Can it harm to just start
defragmentation now and let ik run through the night and hoping it is
ready by tomorrow morning? The disk is 130 gig large.. and has 70%
And what do you mean with the 3gig switch?

Are you running Windows 2k adv server and have more than 1 gig of mem?
if so, have you tried the 3gig swtich in boot.ini?
that might help you some.

also, do you set mailbox limits?
