I am running exchenge 2007 SP1 on windows server 2003 SP2 64bit.
All of a suddent a few days ago, most emails are not coming through, some are and some are not.
I have not made any changes to the server,  and there's a lot of emails not coming through.
I have restarted the server, and that doesn't help.
For example, I have used hte message tracking tool, and I see the emails there, but they are not being sent to my outlook account.  

I've restarted the Information store service and the transport service, but it's still not working.

Any advice?
Thanks, Dan

Thanks for your help, I sent a test email to meyself from my outlook account and when I didn't receive it, I realized last week, I created an outlook rule that takes all emails from myself and puts them in a certain folder.  Of course they were all there ....

Thanks for your help.  I created an outlook rule that sent everything to my own folder in outlook, and that's why they never appeared in my outlook inbox.

Can you try backing up to another drive ?
Is this a USB / NAS device ?

Can you disable your anti-virus on Exchange and then try backing up

sunnyc7,  I'm lost, backing up what to another drive?
Everything is working, it my local Outlook rules I created that was moving the emails to another folder in outlook, so I just disabled those rules and everything is working fine now.
