Yesterday afternoon my inbound mail just started stacking up and not delivering.  I see 1605 errors in the event log like this:

The following call : EcLocallyDeliverMsg to the store failed. Error code : -1605 (Message-ID  <000101c4852e$1db1d500$8700a8c0@Perfect.local>). MDB : 3c0daff9-3431-4770-a515-23b84e142d24. FID : . MID : . File : D:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\vsi 1\Queue\NTFS_1db44fc401c4852e00000012.EML.

Any suggestions on how to get my mail flowing again?

Thanks
Brett

is this for ALL inbound mail or some? check to make sure your DB's are online and working as normal. any other event messages regarding the DB? can you send local mail OK? also check all services.

do you have message log tracking enabled? see if you can trace an inbound message and see what the last route was.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

all mail that goes through the local smtp connector queues (outbound and to other local users).

All services are started, message logging is enabled and it just shows all messages as being queuid with the queuid for the message.

ok, now check your Badmail folder. make sure that you have enough disk space on the drive where your badmail folder is installed. this folder should be checked often and cleared.

Any anti virus software on this machine? Has it been set to exclude the /exchsrvr folders?

what else have you tried since this started to queue? try to delete the first message in the queue and then restart the queue. this is to see if that one email is holding everyting up.

Yep, I tried to delete the first several messages with no luck.  Can anyone tell me for sure what the 1605 error message is(The following call : EcLocallyDeliverMsg to the store failed. Error code : -1605 (Message-ID  )  About the only thing I could find (and it might not even be right) was  a duplicate key in the store...

since local is working correctly it seems that there must be a problem from the inbound queue to the mailbox.  this may be affected by corruption to the metabase......... just a thought.

Which version of Exchange is this?
It looks like either 2000 or 2003. Which patch/service pack is it up to.

You said you are using SMTP connectors? What happens if you remove them? Exchange doesn't need SMTP connectors unless you need to route the email in a different direction to what Exchange can find itself (through a smrthost for example).

Sorry forgot to mention in the first question I was exchange 2003 with sp1....I finally exported mail and deleted the affected mail box....queued mail never did send to the new box (with the same address) like I thought it would , but at this point, that's only a small problem....

Thanks for all the input anyway.
