Every morning my exchange receives about 90 emails generated by an application for reporting purposes but they all get queued up in exchange and only get delivered to myself about one every minute. I can see them all in the queue but it will take about 4 hours for these email to be processed. I am running server 2008 with exchange 2007. Any ideas?

Is there anything else in the queue? Anything else happening during this time period? Backups? Scheduled AV scan? What are the system resources telling you?

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

There are normal incoming emails also in the queue behind these reports waiting to be routed. No backups or AV scans running at this time. System running fine with the exception of memory, processor is idling, network traffic at 0% but memory is at 3.55 gig of 4gb. Looking in task manager, store.exe is utilising 2.2 gb of memory but saying that, the server itself is working fine, not sluggish at all.

I was refering to the rollup when asking where to check this.

Just checked in the registry in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\v8.0\<Role>\ConfiguredVersion and the version it is showing 8.1.240.6 which I beleive is just SP1 with no rollup's.

Does it queue up during the day for any other reason? What if you generate 90 emails on your own and send them internally? What if you restart Exchange services on the server?
