probably the simpleist thing to do is run the exchange troubleshooting assistant. If you are on exchange 2007 it is under the toolbox in the gui. If not just download it from here
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=4bdc1d6b-de34-4f1c-aeba-fed1256caf9a&displaylang=en 
in the wizard you can do a general health check which should point you in the right direction!

Cheers

Can you check that your SMTP service is started and also the Default Virtual server.
Also can you verify a command
"telnet localhost 25" on the exchange server and if you get to the next screen type EHLO and just update if you are able to see the X verbs

Also if there is any AV try stopping and rebooting the server. You can also enable logging on MSExchange Transport.

Few things is this AV a file scanner or mail scanner. If its a File scanner are there exclusions set also in the registry
HKLM\Sys\CCS\Services\MSExchangeIS\Virus Scan (We have to set Enabled and Background Scanning to 0).

MTA is only required if we have any Exchange5.5 as it used to use that. Can you also verify that the mails that are stuck in the local delivery are valid recipients and the size of those emails is that restricted or not?

Don't know if this is important but I changed the raid configuration and partition sizes of the disks before restoring with true image. The odd thing is that this morning soms mails did get delivered..
