new problem just coming to the surface; my queue keeps filling up and i find no way to alleviate this problem with the exception of a reboot.  i attempt a force connection, freeze all of the mails and force one and come up with nothing.

DNS is fine -
Telent works i.e. "telnet <servername> 25"

my exchange configuration
1 primary front end RPC
1 backend server RPC - location of mailboxes.

i have recently updated to SP2 for exchange; and no this problem existed before that.  Servers are pathced witht he latest and greatest :)

please help
