Exchange Delays Emails Received

We have an Exchange 2010 server.  We use mailroute to filter our mail.  Occasionally  a user or a few users will receive a batch of emails that was sent the previous day.  I pasted one of the headers below.  It basically shows it was received 01-22, but send 01-21.  Mailroute says they couldn't reach our server and delayed the email.  I know our internet connection is not going down.  Is there anything else on the Exchange server or  somewhere I could look for what might be causing this occasional problem?

Hello,

You can enabled SMTP logging (http://dougg.co.nz/2011/05/26/enable-smtp-logging-on-exchange-2010-sendreceive-connectors/), which will allow you to see if there are any errors in the connection attempts. You won't be able to see what happened previously but you will be able to look at the logs if it happens again.

I enabled the logging, but the directory they are supposed to go to isn't there.

You may have installed Exchange in a different directory.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

No, its the same default install path.

OK.  I found the logs.  What will I be looking for?

Jamie McKillopIT ManagerCommented:
Run get-transportserver -identity <server> | fl

Look for the ReceiveProtocolLogPath

You will need to look for any errors in the logs during the time any messages are delayed.

OK - mailroute has just said only 1 of their servers is holding up our email and its a server that got listed on SORBS blacklist.  We are not doing any blacklist filtering however that I know of.  Is there blacklist filtering built into Exchange 2010 that we may have turned on?  Otherwise, its starting to sound like their problem to me.

Here are the instructions to configure block list providers. You can check out these setting to see if you have something configured. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd351199%28v=exchg.141%29.aspx

I would agree that it sounds like their issue.

It was MailRoute's issue.  One of their servers was listed on a blacklist or botnet.
