Exchange 2007 Error 421 4.2.2 Connection Dropped
Posted on 2009-03-31
We currently operate in an Exchange 2007 environment with roughly 1000 users with mailboxes. However one particular user sometimes gets the following error:
Delivery is delayed to these recipients or distribution lists:
- list of recipients
This message has not yet been delivered. Microsoft Exchange will continue to try delivering the message on your behalf.
When i check the Queue Viewer i see the message with the following error:
421 4.2.2 Connection dropped
Around 1-2 days later the email will eventually send out to the recipients but really the hold up shouldn't happen at all. Again this problem is only affecting one particular user so it makes me think that the whole exchange setup etc is fine..
Hope someone can help shed some light on why this is going on
The only other thing that might be of help is that the user sends to quite a lot of receipients e.g. this particular email was sent to internal people and around 150 external addresses.. but i would have thought that this amount is not too big for exchange to handle or would i be wrong?
