The Event Viewer Application log on a Microsoft Exchange 2000 server contains numerous instances of the following event:
Event ID: 1023
Event Source: POP3SVC
Event Type: Error
Event Category: Content Engine
Error 0x7d6 occurred while rendering message 0001-00000007271e for download for user dc8e2a0c-9835-4396-a5a4-c13132cb2dd5.


This error can be caused if Outlook clients that are connecting to the Exchange 2000 server are configured with both the Internet E-mail and Microsoft Exchange Server services in the same client profile.

With this configuration, the client downloads mail using a POP3 session. During the POP3 session, if an attempt is made to download a message that has previously been deleted from the mailbox, the Event ID 1023 is generated in the Application event log.


To resolve this issue:
  1. Start Outlook.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Services.
  3. Click Internet E-mail, and then click Remove.
  4. Save the changes.
NOTE: If a client needs Internet e-mail access, create a separate profile for this service.
