Exchange - Having some difficulties receiving emails, particularly ones with attachments

jdsdesktop1 asked
I have noticed that we've had some difficulties receiving a few emails recently, particularly ones with attachments.  This isn't universal, as I am still receiving other emails with attachments.  However, several people have tried to send me emails with attachments that haven't come through.  The same has been the case for some other users.  Awhile back, I was having a similar problem with sending emails to certain people, where the server would seemingly hold them all in some storage tank, and then would disseminate them when the server was restarted.  Consequently, I would get replies to emails that I had sent a week or two earlier that had just been delivered.  I have no idea if this is a similar issue with receiving these emails, but I figured I'd ask and see if you've ever heard of something like this.  The messages don't seem to be getting stored in any of my junk or spam folders.
