So here is the deliemma, This morning my users reported outlook taking forever to connect to the exchange server. I noticed my queue folder was quite large, so I deleted all the contents as 99.9% were spam. I tested for open relay, failed. After consulting a few sites, I closed the relay and retested as good. Well, in ESM under the queue tab there were still tons of emails sitting there. after searching around I noticed several out of 2000 were my users emails from several days ago. I followed a tutorial on how to create a temporary connector to clean out the queues. Well I successfully did that but now all my users emails are building up in that queue. I even tested my own address and sure enough, all mail is stuck in queue. I read to delete the temp conector but im afraid all messages will be lost. Is there a way to push those emails out without losing them? im up to about 30 or so and really need to salvage them. Will deleting the temp connector fix this or wipe them out?
