I would look into the MTA. This utility is handy for fixing troublesome issues related tot he MTA. The MTA in 5.5 is known for it's problems...

Thanks guys
I tried both but still No luck.

Few days ago someone from other company send email to us saying one of their staff is receiving the same e-mail from one of our staff over and over.
Now I came to know that other company forwarded that email to the sender. Now one of our staff who sent that email 4-5 days ago is receiving the same e-mail over and over.

I am not sure whether there is fault in our side or other side.

Please help me.
Thank you

If it's happening on both sides, hard to track. Check the repeat message, view the internet header on each message, see if the mail is actually being resent from their side. Check the date and timestamps. Post a couple of the headers here for viewing.

Here is the header
Where server.xxxxx.com is our domain
user@xxxxx.com sent e-mail to xyz@yyyyy.co.uk
xyz@yyyyy.co.uk was receiving the same mail over and over from user@xxxxx.com
Now they forwarded it back to the sender, user@xxxxx.com is receiving same email from user@xxxxx.com that was sent 4-5 days ago.

If I'm reading this right, you have more than one Exchange server with IMS, based on xxxxx.com being your domain. clarify this path for me:

"Received: from another.com (www.funmail.co.uk [212.62.7.9]) by Server.xxxxx.com with SMTP (Microsoft Exchange Internet Mail Service Version 5.5.2653.13)====who's server is this?

Received: from Server.xxxxx.com ([x.x.x.x] unverified) by heraldwebsites.com with Microsoft SMTPSVC(5.0.2195.6713); Wed, 15 Oct 2003 17:57:41 +0100=== is this your Windows 2000 front end?
Received: by Server..xxxxx.com with Internet Mail Service (5.5.2650.10)id <4P7413BB>; Wed, 15 Oct 2003 16:54:24 +0100====is this your server as well, and is it still on SP2 for Exchange? The version of the IMC is post-SP2

Yes

I updated to SP4 yesterday.
David WilhoitSenior Consultant, ExchangeCommented:
First, go get the latest IMC patch, simply on principal:

http://www.microsoft.com/technet/treeview/default.asp?url=/technet/security/current.asp

After you apply this, run the performance optimizer on the server. do it after hours, it will have to stop all services. MS recommends that after you apply the Exchange service pack on a server running the IMC, that you run the perfopt tool to finalize the settings. No need to move anything, just run it.
