Problem

In an SMTP Archiving environment, If Enterprise Vault is installed on Windows 2012 R2, some emails with malformed attachments can remain on the storage queue, getting retried indefinitely.

Furthermore, when archiving to a non-centera partition, a high memory usage by the dllhost processes may also be observed which may lead to the system running out of memory.
