I have an Exchanage 2003 server and emails are building up in the messages waiting to be routed (SMTP). When I check the status of message it states message scheduled to retry routing.  When I look in the queue, I can see external emails being added to it.

This was all working fine yesterday and a large e-shot was sent last night and thats when the problem started.

Would restarting any exchange services help?

    The SMTP virtual Server was restarted and the problem was resolved
