On an *occasional* pc on our network, mails can't be sent through smtp because they get stuck in the queue because the local SMTP service is sending a BDAT LAST command before it has actually sent any of the message body. We have narrowed down the problem to this. 90% of the pc/servers on our lan can send the smtp messages no problem, but an occasional one exhibits this problem, even after restarting smtp/iis/os. The 90% that work and the 10% that don't all have the same smtp configuration. Come to think of it, the problem seems to usually happen on windows2000, but by the same token, many other win2k pc/servers work fine with the smtp.
is there a fix or workaround for this?
i have already read:
