email delayed for 1 month

I have an SBS2003 server running Exchange 2003 SP2, this morning we received non-delivery messages from email that have been sent on Feb 22, we are now the March 23.

How come there is a gap like that between the delivery? The weird thing also is that we sent emails and received email between that time period without any problems.

Any clues?

Did yor restart the server/Exchange service some where around the 23rd March before you received the old NDR? When you restart old badmail that could not be delievered can be re-sent from the badmail folder.

Can you view the headers on the NDR and see where it may have been delayed if it was stuck some where.

This is down to a bug often referred to as the greylisting bug.  Read the following article, request the hotfix and install it:


This only rears it's head when you restart the Information Store or reboot the server.
