Exchange not forwarding emails to users
Posted on 2005-05-04
I am running SMS 2003, Exchange 2003 on one box. My router sends all POP3 and SMTP packets (via NAT) to this box. I installed Symantec AV about 6 months ago. All has been working fine until 4/20/05. On this day, I noticed the server just stopped routing emails to the users -- all users are affected.
First I checked the protocols and noticed Exhcnage complaining about x.400. Then I checked the Services and noticed it was not running. I started it -- no luck. I then noticed some messages were "unreadable" by Evolution (on my Linux box). I deleted those emails. I also noticed my other account also had suspecious emails (heck, one had a subject: This is the file ....). I believe these were all virus files. No one has opened these files as far as I know. I also performed a virus scan of the entire hard drive and two infected files were quarantined.
At this moment, I am still unable to have emails forwarded by Exchange.
Any ideas what I might try to get this resolved?
