Outbound Email Stuck In SMTP Queue
Posted on 2005-03-07
Small Business Server 2000 running Exchange Server 2000. Today I started experiencing problems with both outbound and inbound emails. Inbound are non-existant and have been speaking to hosting company who reckon everything is OK (fair enough for now).
Major problem is outbound. It seems every email being sent is stopping in the SMTP Queue in:
Exchange System Manager > Servers > (Our server) > Protocols > SMTP > Default SMTP Virtual Server > Queues
Any that were there I enumerated and deleted and sent senders Non-Delivery Reports to clear out the queue.
I also went into the queue folder in C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\vsi 1\Queue but it is empty and the folder C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\vsi 1\BadMail doesnt have an extra-ordinary amount of files in here on any particular date - a couple from a few days ago. My head is starting to go now as cannot figure this out. Any help would be much appreciated, thanks in advance
