Mailbox filling up

Exchange 2000 has gone loco.  My mailbox is filling up with the same messages over and over.  I have dozens of test messages like you receive when you are testing your accounts.  I am receiving a test message that I sent in the morning over and over.  I keep getting emails that I have already got.  I don't know what to do.  I've bounced all the Exchange services, including the SMTP virtural connector.  I can't seem to stop Exchange from resending these messages.

You may have a bad message format in a mail queue.

Open up the mail queue and remove the message (it should be just sitting in the folder)

This link explains more about the SMTP server and where to find the folders for you SMTP server:

Thanks for the tip, but all the queues show zeros.  Nothing is waiting to be sent, so this does not seem to be an acceptable answer.

Making Bulk Changes to Active Directory

Watch this video to see how easy it is to make mass changes to Active Directory from an external text file without using complicated scripts.

That's odd.

Have you check where the messages are coming from - so do they have an internet header or not?
If they do then it may be a spam attack, if not then it may be a worm/virus on one of your outlook machines or someone has set up a stupid rule to auto reply.

Let me know.

Did you ever get to the bottom of this problem?

I called Microsoft.  The tech I spoke to said my user profile was corrupted.  I had to delete it and recreate it.  Now all the duplicate messages that I had been receiving are no longer coming in.  This topic can be closed.  No points assigned.  Thanks for trying ...
