Mail Sitting in Queue Exchange 2010
Posted on 2011-03-17
I am currently having a problem with my Exchange 2010 server. After an email is sent from the user it sits in the queue for around 30 minutes and then finally sends. Now for most this may not be a major problem but for my company it is a HUGE problem. This problem did not start until we changed our ISP a few months ago. Once we did that we started getting alot of emails sitting in queue that looked like this
Subject: Undeliverable: FW: !!! HOT !!! Due date change for l Plant 1

Now what i have noticed is if i keep these cleaned out all the time the emails get sent out within a couple minutes of hitting the queue. Please help with this.
