Issue with Exchange

We've recently had a problem with Exchange on a few clients servers.
First turned up when a user noted that some emails they were sending hadn't reached their destination.
Checked their Exchange queues and nothing was blocked. About a week or so later after their server was restarted the users that had complained that their mail hadn't reached their desired destination had now received them. This seems to have happened on another two Exchange 2003 servers over the past few weeks.

Just wondering if anyone else has come across the issue or are aware of any windows updates etc... that may have caused the problem.

Each time it's been reported the queues in Exchange were clear.
Thanks in advance for any assistance

    Did you perform a message tracking via the Exchange interface? Perhaps checking the whereabouts of the lost messages there might help in locating the problem.

    Accepted Solution

    Issue was with a windows greylist update
