A few months ago we put in a new server with 2003 sbs. We created a new domain and migrated the info from the old server to the new server.
We hit a snag with our email. We could send and receive internally without issue. We could send mail externally without issue, but when it came to receiving email from an external source, it was delayed by as much as 10 hours, if it came at all. We checked all settings over and over again and everything seemed fine. Eventually, 2 days later, the email fixed itself and it started to come instantly.
Can anyone give me a reason why it would just fix itself? I understand that there may have been a backlog as our old server was down for roughly a day, but would it really take 2 days to distribute the email?
Just to let you know, the email does not come directly into our Exchange server, first it goes to another server with Mail Enable installed.
Thanks for any info you can give me.
