When an exchange server has a resource issue (like out of disk space), and starts rejecting mail with a 4.3.1 Insufficient Resources error, how should / does the remote sending server react? Are there bounce messages generated? How does the sender know there was a problem, and that they should resend the email? Or... does it try to re-deliver later?

you need to upgrade the RAM and/or  HDD

If the sender received the message, that means the message went through.

It will not be resent

Hi DrD,

The sending server simply fails to deliver the message and will retry later for as long as it is configured to retry, at which point it will give up and send a failed message, or if the problem is fixed on the receiving server, it will eventually deliver the message.

The sender won't know anything about the problem unless the sending server is configured to send a delayed message (which Exchange will do by default).
