Incoming and outgoing mails stuck in smtp queues
Posted on 2004-11-17
Any help would be much appreciated. Let me begin by saying I'm fairly new to exchange, so this may well be a simple config issue.
Mail server was running fine until last weekend. On monday morning, no mails coming in or going out. When I checked the default virtual server queues they were empty, but new mails sent either from internal users or external don't appear on queues. After much frustration, I found that we were open for mail relay, which I closed off, and then I deleted the smtp connector and set up a new one. (Actually set up a new one and then deleted the old one). Now incoming and outgoing mails are appearring in the queues, but not getting forwarded to the internal users or to the external domains. They're just sitting on the server.I'm guessing that in disabling the open relay I've also disabled the proper relay from the server to the internal clients/external domains, but I don't know how to fix it. Any ideas???
