In the application event log, the following event IDs may be logged by the Exchange Server message transfer agent (MTA):

A fatal MTA database server error was encountered. A bad list member length is on object 06000035. File offset: 2004. Attribute ID: 79. Referenced object 00000000 (0 => N/A). Referenced object error: 0. [DB Server DISP:ROUTER 13 42] (16)

An MTA database server error was encountered while reading an attribute. Called from MTA. Procedure: 138. Database error code: 2111. Object at fault: 06000035. Attribute identifier: 79. Value number: 1. Referenced object: 00000000 (00000000 => N/A). Referenced object error 0. [DB Server DISP:ROUTER 13 26] (14)

The Db000035.dat file also grows continuously in size.
