POP3 stuck mail messages

Hi all,

I have a user which keeps getting sent THE SAME email message over and over again.

I have tried the SMTPMTA_DENIED_DOMAINS entry in the notes.ini but it still comes through. Maybe Domino (R4.6) thinks this email isn't being sent and so keeps trying to send it? How would I check if this is the case?

Any information on this subject would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Andrew

Is there a database which holds the emails before they are delivered to the user's mail file?

I've tried the SMTP Inbound/Outbound Work Queues, but they're empty.

It is held in the mail.box and then transferred to the router and then to mail db

Does anyone have any practical information?
I mean, has anyone run into any problems upgrading?

My previous comment was posted to the wrong qiestion!

I never found a satisfactory answer to this problem - I ended up installing R5 and using the "rules" to delete the message before it got to the mailbox.
