What makes the email messages stay in the MTA queues so long?  Even messages that are very small stay there for sometimes hours when their destination via a X.400 connector is very close.

hmmm.. I even re-started the MS exchange services and it did not do anything...ANy comments?

Thanks-

Hello,

Please check port 102 (Telnet) on destination server is responding or not. Can you breif which version of exchange you are using?
-If you are using 5.5, please recycle the DS services
-If you are using E2k or later version, Check MTA dat files from MTACHECK tool (Its available on MS/Sysinternal site)

Below is link, Which explains about MTA in E2k:

For 5.5 there is a FIX

Appologies for the delayed response....

You can recycle the DS from below command

net stop MSExchangeDS
net start MSExchangeDS

You can test the port 102 is responding by
- telnet <host name> 102

Thanks nishin- I'm away from the office now, I'll try this when I return.

From a cmd prompt- type net stop MSExchangeDS and wait how long before the net start?
