Exchange 2010 not picking up mail from any outbox of any user

Exchange 2010 sp1

This is sudden.  Everything was working.

Now for every user, the same thing:

Send an email: gets stuck in outbox.

Incoming mail from the outside gets delivered without problems.

Thanks for your help.

Check all Microsoft services on the Mailbox and Hub server and free space ...... also check the status of Database ?

When I send from owa it gets stuck in the drafts folder.

There is plenty of free space on the exchange server, 125gb of 249gb is free.

How do I check the status of the database?

All services are up and running.

Thanks for your help with this.

I only have one server and all exchange services are started.

I don't think I have a product key problem but how do I check product key and expiration?

It shows a product ID.

I also just ran a best practices health scan and it didn't show any problems.

I even tried to open a ticket with microsoft but they said "wait until morning".

I'd rather fix it tonight, if possible.

Thanks again for all your suggestions so far.

So is the Exchange restarted ?
Are all services running ?
Any eventId's on the Application log ?

I've restarted exchange several times.  Always the services start without problems, all of them.

There are no errors or warnings in the application log.

It's mystifying.

Can you do a telnet from the Client to the server and drop an email ?

Is this a new installation ? or was it working and stopped after some upgrades or something ?

Sorry for the two-day silence.  The problem just cleared up by itself, and then several more ugly problems on our network popped up, which is why I didn't get back to you.

Thanks for all your help on this.  It was good having someone to work with during this crisis.

The whole thing remains a mystery the likes of which I hope I never encounter again.
