    Hello!

    We have a 2003 server that runs mail and file sharing.
    Exchange version: 6.5.7638.1

    Every other night or so it crashes, the error log reports:

    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: 8004011d-0512-00000000

    So what i've done is set the server to auto restart every morning, which solves the problem for now..

    Any suggestions about the error?

    Many thanks

    James.

    I was gonna suggest exactly what you have done, i.e. the reboot. I had similar issue with Exchange 2000 and did this until I found the solution.

    Had is got anything to do with the backup? Or is one of the Exchange Services set to start with an invalid username/password.

    HI,

    Thanks for your reply. I thought it was backup so i have deleted all the daily and weekly backups.

    I mean its strange, it didn't crash last night. I reckon tonight it will.

    Regards

    James.
