Exchange Server 2003 randomly resending old emails?
Posted on 2010-01-06
A bit of history: About a month ago I applied some overdue windows updates to our Exhcange 2003 server and restarted. The next day I received calls from several staff saying they heard from clients saying they received emails that were months old. I assumed that these had been jammed in the queue and the restart pushed them through. I have been monitoring the queue and outgoing email is flowing. Over the past two days I have gotten reports from one user that he has received email that he originally received months earlier. He is a BlackBerry user and we have an in-house BES (4.1). And of course, as things usually go, this user is the CEO and my boss. Hard to play that one down. I am currently trying to make sure this is isolated to him only but wanted to throw this out for anyone who may have seen this problem. I am going to try a hard reset of his BlackBerry to see if that is the problem. He is also the only one in the company using Vista. He us using Outlook 2007. So, as of this morning he has received two old emails. One from last July and one from Dec. 30. Any ideas?
