SYMPTOMS

The Imap4.exe process crashes intermittently on a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 server. Additionally, the following event is generated in the Application log::


Event Type: Error
Event Source: .NET Runtime 2.0 Error Reporting

Event ID: 1000
Description:

Faulting application microsoft.exchange.imap4.exe, version <version>, stamp <stamp>, faulting module kernel32.dll, version <version>, stamp <stamp>, debug? 0, fault address <address>.

CAUSE

In this scenario, the search operation generates a large query. Therefore, the stack overflows and causes the Imap4.exe process to crash.
