HI All,

I sent an email via outlook 2000 to a client, the client has just phoned me up to say they have received the email around 30 times at this stage it appears to be going the client every 2 to 3 hours. I use a pop3 email anmd my client uses an exchange server 2003.

Any ideas as to why this might be happening, i am virus free as it my client i have ran spybot to check for spyware but all is clean.


Cheers

hmmm...

Did we try shutting down the outlook client at your end?

I would also like you to check the size of your PST (if you are using any) and check if its over sized.

If your pop is being hosted by your ISP you need to ask them to do this for you....

If the emails is going from your ISP to the destination exchange server, all you can do is block your domain for a day (may be) and then unblock.

I know it does sound stupid, but this is in case your ISP tells you there is nothing they can do.

Add the sender domain in the sender filtering on the destination exchange 2003 server. Enable the same from the default smtp virtual server.

Restart routing enginer service and smtp service..

All is done.

You will get Sender filtering settings under global settings/message delivery
