    It's normal, store.exe process will take all memory it can.

    What is specifically your problem? Does users report loss of functionailty, does mail not arrive recipients or something else?

      Hi Bustanji, Fischfra is right. Exchange is designed to eat and eat your resources so it will always have high memory usage.

      It is designed however to release resources when other applications need it.

      So the question is, is it causing you a problem? Or are you just concerned.

          What else is on the server?
          While store.exe is designed to use as much memory as it needs to, this shouldn't lead to an unstable server. The most common cause of memory not be released is third party interference. AV or Antispam that is integrated in to Exchange is the most common cause.

          Disabling those products is not enough to show that they are not responsible, because of the way they integrate. They have to be removed and the server rebooted to clear them out completely.
