Hi Experts,

Some of my users are having weird behavior with their mailbox... They got old e-mails randomly sent out as themselves to the same people on those old e-mails.  Could you please give me a lead on how to troubleshoot this?  I have asked the users to change their passwords on a different computers than those that they are using; turn off their current machines until I can run some scan...  Please advise.

Hi,

Please check on your Hub Transport Servers and see if any mails are getting queued and release or remove them based on their timestamp. It could be that mails are getting queued and users are retrying the queued mails and later on queued mails are getting delivered.

the queue is empty... and when I said old e-mails... they're randomly picked from a month, 3 months.. 5-6 months ago...  I have not heard from anyone else besides a couple of these users... so their machines might have been compromised, infected... I'll update you on this.  Thanks.
