Subject: [exchangelist] inetinfo.exe high memory usage



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.


2k> Message Tracking May Cause the Inetinfo.exe Process to Show Very High
Memory Use


2k> 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?
