Microsoft Exchange 2003...
Posted on 2009-04-22
I administer a network with 200 users, we are running Server 2003, exchange 2003 Standard for our mail server. The last few days I got into trouble because a tender was emailed to us twice in a 24hr period with 2 attachments, one was 10mb, the other was 6mb, I have set our attachment maximum size to 30mb some months ago. Now we never recieved either of those emails and nore did the sender recieve a NDR until yesterday saying:-
Connected to (Our IP Address) but connection died. (#4.4.2)
I'm not going to try again; this message has been in the queue too long.
But then this morning the email was sent again and we recieved it, almost immediately.. with all attachments.
Is there any reason why this happened..??? that anybody knows of.. or is it likely to happen again..?? Can I do anything to prevent it happening again..??? any help or comments please...
Also I have noticed lately alot of outbound mail seem to be in the queue for quite a while before going.. and even sometimes I need to force the connection for them to go..
Any Help would be grately apprieted..
