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

Could it be a problem with Intelligent Mail Filter or with the message sizes?  Have you added any other rules recently, such as approved senders, etc?

Can we have an idea about what is not being delivered ? Are there any hardware faults ? Iscsi endpoint hosting any of the info stores ?

When you say most emails, I really need more info. Are certain ones coming through from a certain domain ? Any little bits of info help here.

Let's get an idea of where the messages are stuck, Please open the exchange management console, last option is toolbox.

Look in there for the queue viewer. Any messages hung in there ?

on your exchange server
start > run > eventvwr
Check under windows logs\application

See if there are any event ID's with 15002 / 15006 ? 15000 series

Please post back.

thanks

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.

Don't lose your head updating email signatures!

Do your end users still have the wrong email signature? Do email signature updates bore you or fill you with a sense of dread? You can make this a whole lot easier on yourself by trusting an Exclaimer email signature management solution. Over 50 million users do...so should you!

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.
