Internet SMTP connector delivery failure 'The connection was dropped due to an SMTP protocol event sink.'
Posted on 2006-10-25
I've got this problem that only this one message gets stuck in the internet SMTP connector queue event sink errors preventing other messages from going out.
If I understand it correctly exchange creates instances of the message for every recipient and places that in the queue. So if there are 11 recipients in the To... box there should reflect 11 messages in the queue. But when I view the queue there are only 10 messages and retry deliveries are already on 12 retries. Freeze these 10 that retries with SMTP protocol event sink errors and my other mail goes through fine.
