why would my exchange server (windows 2000 server, exchange server 2000) randomly stop routing email?
outlook reports that you are connected to exchange. composed emails go into sent folder, however, the emails do not reach their recipients.
OS and exchange are fully updated with service packs, virus software and mail filtering software are up to date.
no flags in the event logs.
a server restart always resolves the issue, as all sent mail will then begin to reach its destination
