Some users were reporting that they were not getting messages that they were expecting so we checked and seen that there are some messages stuck in the Local Delivery queue in Exchange 2003.  The emails are mostly from internal users sending to other internal users however there are a few external emails that are stuck in there also.  There are no problems sending emails out.

I ran the Exchange Best Practices Analyser and the Exchange Troubleshooting Assistant on the SBS 2003 server.  The Exchange BPA didn't find any issues but the Exchage TRA returned the following:

Messages pending local delivery

The 'Local delivery' queue (domainname) on server servername is in retry status. Source: 'Default SMTP Virtual Server'. Number of message(s) in the queue: 12. Additional status information:

Can anyone suggest what the problem might be and how we can resolve it ?
