SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You enable Message Journaling or install a third-party Transport Agent on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 server.
  • The Exchange server receives messages that are signed or that have embedded messages as attachments.
In this scenario, Microsoft Exchange Transport services crashes continuously, and the message flow stops. Additionally, a "StackOverflowException" error is logged in the Application log:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: .NET Runtime 2.0 Error Reporting
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1000
Description:
Faulting application edgetransport.exe, version version_number, stamp stamp, faulting module kernel32.dll, version version_number, stamp stamp, debug? 0, fault address address.

CAUSE

This issue occurs when Message Journaling or the Transport Agent tries to access the signed message or the attached message. When this occurs, the corresponding MIME content parsing enters a loop situation that then causes a Stack Overflow exception in Microsoft Exchange Transport services.
