Exchange - Pickup Queue EML files

Posted on 2008-10-30
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
After a quickly, but not well planned, exchange 2003 migration to a new server I have an smtp queue folder of about 225 EML files which I need to be processed/delivered.  I've tried dropping this EML files into the new exchange server's pickup directory and they're almost instantly processed but none of that mail is being delivered. I can open the EML files and see that emails are there for users, but they never make it to the user mailbox. any ideas of how to process these remaining EML files would be greatly appreciated.  About 225 emails need to be delivered locally to about 20 users.

These emails are already categorized thats why they are stuck in the queue. Do you see them in any particular queue stuck ??

Exchange should already know where to deliver them - so on your new server you may want to  re-categorize them for delivery - follow the kb article.
