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

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.
