repeated administrator emails and smtp queue filling up.
Posted on 2004-10-28
ok, i have a bit of a situation here.
my exchange server is continually sending mesages from administrator to adminstrative account (mine) saying your message could not be delivered. i have scanned my pc for viruses and it comes up clean. the smtp queues is filling up with iundeliverable mail, i have had up to 1200 queues. I have no idea how to fix this. At first i thought the emails were coming externally so i turned on recipient filtering as i saw it fixed this problem for someone else but it made no difference.
i have trendmicro scan mail on the server and it constantly show message found from administrator at smtp mailbox, about 5 oer second. these are the non delivery recipts by the look of it.
any ideas? its exchange 20003 running on server 2000.
