I have a problem where e-mail from one Exchange server is staying in the PreSubmissionQueue for a few minutes and then it is delivered fine. My users are seeing there e-mail staying in the outbox for about the same amount of time. I enable advanced logging on the server and nothing is standing out. I have also checked out DNS and everything seems fine there. I am going to reboot the domain controller and the Exchange server to see if that resolves the issue, but I was wondering if anyone has seen this issue before.

Yes, I have tried everything that I could find on this web site and Microsoft's without luck. I just rebooted the domain controllers and Exchange server and the issue still exists.

I uninstalled every product that had anything to do with Exchange or anti-virus including the backup module for Exchange, then I rebooted the server, after that mail was being delivered normally. I then reinstalled all of the software that was previously uninstalled and mail is still being delivered normally, so I am happy now. Thanks for all your help.
