My mail is queueed-up in the c:\inetpub\mailroot\queue.
In the left hand pane I can see a preview of the mail, but it is not readable.
Does any one know a util with wich I can monitor the mailqueue, see the sender, recipient, subject and the message-body.
Now I have to open each item with OE.
And is there a way to manipulate the queue? Deleted items.

No
Got an exchange server which forwards mail to a smarter host in the DMZ.
The server in de DMZ is a win2k with IIS5 smtp serving as relaying mail server.
Installed GFI ME 12 and AVAST anti-virus on that machine also.
Some mails get delayed and the queue gets longer.
Need a tool to monitor the smtp mail queue's.

I guesss you are looking for a mail filtering product. There are many available from free (limited functionality) to very expensive! Not sure if you are after an adhoc monitor, or something that can filter and quaranteen based upon rules?

Norton Security Centre will do this, and Mail AV and firewall as well if you wish.
