Exchange 2003 sending the same message every 3 minutes

Posted on 2008-10-20

We have three primary servers - Exchange 2003, Application Server, and MS SQL server.  An application sent out an e-mail to a customer at about 12:00 AM, and the Exchange server continues to send out the e-mail every three minutes for about 12 hours now.  

My first thought was that the application was still sending out the email, so I turned off both the SQL and Application server and the mail server continues to send the message.  I can see it as an SMTP connection, and can freeze the SMTP connection, but they keep piling up.

Is this a automatically generated email?  It sounds like an email loop.  The messages responds to a message that the other system replies to automatically!  
Check for the email headers, verify that both senders and recipient are legit accounts.
