The exchange server where I work has been hording emails and I was not aware of it. It came to light today when I restarted the server for an application problem and email users were getting replies from emails that had been sent out in early May. 2 questions here ... 1) how can I see if the server is holding email for any reason and 2) how can I make sure that when the Exchange gets the email, that it is forwarded quickly if not immediately.

Under Protocols -> SMTP - Queue, you can see all msgs awaiting being sent or being held up. As I am on 2K7, I can't recall if you can configure the hold/retry settings there. You can manually force a retry/resend or delete/send NDR (or delete/don't send NDR).

I've checked your responce and all 9 queues are currently empty, but the queue was listed in a different area ... it was under Admin Groups-First Admin Group-Servers-Server1-Queue ... there is no queue shown under the Protocols-SMTP ...

the queue is currently empty, but that is after i restarted the server ... is there a way for me to check and see if it was packed before the restart?

Additionally: email was operational before the reboot, and is still operational

Can’t get the mobile email signature right?

Not having any luck when trying to create an email signature for mobile devices? Does the formatting keep messing up? Make sure you have great email signatures on all devices by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

No...there's no "history" of queued msgs.

is there a way other than continually checking the queue to find out if it is 'clogged'?

Sorry "cduvall5460"...certainly wasn't intentional. Sometimes I get a bit busy (as I'm sure you can relate to) and involved in several other posts & need a "reminder". If possible, please try to send a 2nd remider post before giving a low grade, but am thankful for the points. :)

The only way to to know if emails are queued up is to indeed check the SMTP queue. Typically, things will send out fine; the only way to know when there's a problem is when you receive word from a user that they received an NDR, or by occasionally checking the queue. Hope this answers it for you.

Regards.
