I receive server alerts related to SMTP que length, a large number of messages are pending in the send que. I have heard that if the server is an open relay, the que will grow quickly and can crash the server? There are intermittent crashes that occur every several weeks.
What do you recommend for troubleshooting a large number of messages are pending in the e-mail server send queue.
