Details
Product: Exchange
Event ID: 2139
Source: MSExchangeMTA
Version: 6.5.0000.0
Message: A fatal system error occurred while initializing the MTA. Reboot the machine. If that does not work, Contact Microsoft Technical Support. [valuevaluevaluevalue] (16)
   
Explanation
The Microsoft Exchange Server disk may be full or a disk error may have occurred. The message transfer agent (MTA) service will stop if the disk is full.
   
User Action
If the Microsoft Exchange Server disk is full, delete any unnecessary files. If you suspect a disk error, run Chkdsk.

Verify that the \Exchsrvr\Mtadata directory exists. Stop and restart the MTA service. If the error persists, run the Mtacheck.exe utility. Stop the MTA service, open a command prompt, and type Mtacheck/v /f c:\mta.txt.

If Mtacheck removes objects from a database queue, it places each damaged object in a Db*.dat file in \Exchsrvr\Mtadata\Mtacheck.out. Contact Microsoft Product Support Services for assistance.
