Thanks for the response.  After more research I came across KB article 257184.  

This procedure worked great!  All is working and just as I suspected the errors 
cleared after we addressed the disk space issue.

Thanks again.

  If you have the option, add an extra drive with more space and create a large 
partition on it. With all Exchange services stopped, copy the contents of M: to 
your new partition. Now use Disk administrator to set the drive letter of the 
new partition to M: and restart your exchange services. I've used this 
technique with exchange 5.5 and MSSQL7 with great success.

    Subject: [windows2000] M Drive full

    For some reason the M drive on our Exchange2000 server is completely full.  
We are doing backups which are set to flush the logs.  I have asked all users 
to delete anything they can to clean up.  

    The application log is full of these error messages:

    Microsoft Exchange System Attendant failed to read the membership of group 
'cn=Exchange Domain Servers,cn=Users,dc=MyDomain,dc=lan'. Error code 
'80072030'. Please check whether the local computer is a member of the group. 
If it is not, stop all the Microsoft Exchange services, add the local computer 
into the group manually and restart all the services. 

    The MAPI call 'OpenMsgStore' failed with the following error: 

    The attempt to log on to the Microsoft Exchange Server computer has failed. 
 The MAPI provider failed. Microsoft Exchange Server Information Store ID no: 


    I believe that if I can somehow get the M drive cleaned up then these 
errors will go away.

    Any ideas?    TIA.
