Consider the following scenario. You create a Contacts folder in public folder tree that is located in a Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 environment. Additionally, you add some contacts in the Contacts folder. A user opens the properties of the Contacts folder in Microsoft Office Outlook. Then, the user clicks to select the Show this folder as an e-mail Address book check box in the Outlook address book, opens the Outlook address book, and then browses to the Contacts folder. In this scenario, the Store.exe process on the Exchange 2007 server uses almost 100 percent of CPU resources. Additionally, the size of the public folder store increases quickly.
This problem occurs because the index is not available when the Microsoft Exchange Information Store service tries to create an index-based view. It takes lots of CPU resource to create such views. Additionally, such views require lots of temporary table space. The space requirement causes the database to increase.
