I have just uninstalled GFi ME 11 from an Exchange 2003 server running on Server 2003, following this mail is queueing up in my outbound SMTP queue.

Restarting SMTP service releases some of the mail, then stops again almost instantly, restart of IIS/Exchange services and a reboot of the server hasn't helped

What are my options?

If I recall, doesn't GFI create its own connector for sending mail?  If so, check out your connector settings.  Wish I could help more but it has been a long time since I had experience with MailEssentials.

You can re-install Exchange 2003 SP2 - that resolves a multitude of problems.

I resolved this by making a new virtual smtp server and using that as the bridgehead, which killed incoming too! After swapping back and stopping the new smtp server the default was working fine, strange!

@cliffcork - Posting a comment in a closed question that isn't your own is not the best way to get help.

If you have an issue, please raise your own question and if necessary, post a link to this question advising you have a similar problem but the solution doesn't wrk for you and then you are far more likely to get assistance.

Thanks
