Exchange repeating inbound message every 5 minutes
Posted on 2008-11-11
My client is running Exchange Server 2003. He received an email (with an attachment) from a business associate at 3:54 this morning. Every five minutes since then he has received another copy of the same email. Headers in Outlook show this to be a different message. But when I pull this up in Message Tracking it is the same message that has gotten in a loop and keeps delivering it to the store. The sequence is:
SMTP: Message Submitted to Advanced Queuing
SMTP: Started Message Submission to Advanced Queue
SMTP: Message Sumbitted to Categorizer
SMTP: Message Categorized and Queued for Routing
SMTP: Message Queued for Local Delivery
SMTP: Message Delivered Locally to MyName@MyDomain.com
SMTP Store Driver: Message Delivered Locally to Store to MyName@MyDomain.com.
Five minutes later it repeats.
I have read posts about using MFCMAP to clear the queues, but I have never been in there before. I looked around in the SMTP TempTables but find no sign of this message.
