Running Exchange 2003 sp2 on Windows 2003 SP2.

Yesterday we started getting e-mails about 25 minutes behind when they were sent. It doesn't matter if they're sent from an outside address or internal address they both are delayed the same. Because I'm a complete novice when it comes to exchange I'm looking for somebody to give me some things to look for or try in order to resolve this problem.

I've tried restarting all services related to Exchange as well as a system reboot. Nothing has worked so far.

How much mail do you have in your queue?  If not a lot you could rename the queue folder to queue.old and let it build a new one.  It may have gotten corrupted.  Happened to us once but on 2007.

Generally anywhere from 40-120 messages sit in the queue just waiting to be passed on to the users mailbox. Seems to take anywhere from 5 minutes on up to 30.

After looking at it and messing with it a lot more. It seems that every so often some e-mails also get stuck in the 'Messages awaiting directory lookup' queue. Any ideas?
