we have sporadic occurances of inbound internet mail messages delivered late if the exchange server is either rebooted or the transport service is restarted.  Upon restarting the transport,Some of these are legit and some are spam.  The background scan of the queue db occurs.  The next message is "The background scan of the transport queue database has completed: 62 messages were found.

Interestingly there are no messages in the EMC queues nor when checking in EMS using get-queue or qet queue | FL

how can i determine what these 62 (and counting) messages are and to prevent inbound internet mail flow from becoming interrupted?  
 
msexchange transport Event ID 17010

Thanks in advance!

Hey James,

Event ID 17010 may just be telling you how many messages are also in the Transport Dumpster. The Transport Dumpster maintains a copy of messages by default for 7 days. And can resend those messages to the mailbox database if required.

You can check its configuration with the Get-TransportConfig | FL *Dumpster* cmdlet.

Thanks Gareth!  The dumpster is set to 7 days retention.  I am glad to know 17010 is also identified with the dumpster.  I wasn't sure if those were orphaned or malformed messages and with the behavior of the transport after server reboot, it just looked suspicious. Thanks again

The curse of the end user strikes again      

You’ve updated all your end user’s email signatures. Hooray! But guess what? They’re playing around with the HTML, adding stupid taglines and ruining the imagery. Find out how you can save your signatures from end users today.
