Mail in queues

We have been experiencing some Internet outages with our ISP.  We are backup but I am noticing a lot of email in the queues going out bound and they don't seem to be going out.  I stopped and started the SMTP default server, and notice that the connectors are all active now.  Not seeing any error msgs in the logs.  Am seeing some can not resolve DNS comments.

Any idea?  Should I just give it some time to send?

ok..most of the emails are locked into retry again...and have the msg unable to bind to the destination server in DNS.  I know some emails are going out cause I have received replies from people outside our group

Additional info is I ran nslookup on the exchange box...and
it did not get past our AD's DNS call
DNS request timed out.
timeout was 2 seconds
Request to ad server timed-out

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

never mind....seems either running /flushdns or reload or stoping and starting the dns server on the AD controller fixed the problem

did not run those...I had figured it was my dns server some how not talking to the world...cause it getting bounced up and down like a yoyo for the past 24hours from my isp...and after I did all three of the above it opened the flood gates.

don't use Logix as an ISP...just a bit of advice
