Exchange Queue problem

Hi just noticed a problem with our exchange mail queue 'slowly' sending outbound mail. We use messagelabs to send. Problem has just occurred after removing and old 2003 exchange server from ESM.

Getting an error in the queue  server-IS@domainname subject Hierarchy

Running win server 2003 r2, exchange 2003

Thanks

There an issue going on with Message Lab, i also faced same issue recently. Call them and check if US Cluster issue is fixed or not. Also check header information, where it is getting delayed.

The message you have posted is a public folder replication message.
Did you remove all of the replicas from the Exchange 2003 server before removing it? Did you move the tree to the Exchange 2010 Admin group before removing Exchange 2003? It could just be a hang over from the Exchange 2003 removal which will go away once the queues expire.

Thanks Guys for getting back to me

I contacted messagelabs and they said it shouldn't be affecting us as we are based in the UK.

However, just changed mail to send using DNS rather than messagelabs and outbound mail is running ok. Thanks for the heads up amitkulshrestha

Simon, I've had both 2003 servers running exchange 2003 for a while and moved everything to the newer server (decided that the old server could be used for something else) I'm worried that something may not have replicated over although at the time all public folders were relocated to the new server and this message which was in the queue worries me.

server-IS@domainname subject Hierarchy


I'll switch back to messagelabs once I know their US issue is cleared just in case it was the problem

Cheers

It is the hierarchy - that isn't the content, but the folder layout. It is sent to the other servers are regular intervals. If the messages don't reappear then ignore them.
