Additional Information

This failure will occur on every operating system on which GWIA is installed.  In our troubleshooting, an iCal appointment message can be found in the Send or Receive folder after restarting the server.  Removing this iCal message(s) will allow the GWIA to restart successfully until the next iCal appointment is processed.  Not all iCal appointments will cause the GWIA to crash.
