Exchange 2013 - Email Stuck in Draft

I have recently installed exchange 2013 on a server and have yet to provide it with Send Connectors.

To ensure that everything is working correctly internally wise, I have send an email internally to another member of staff.

However the problem is that the email is stuck in draft and will not deliver, I have the exact same problem with an exchange 2013 server running on a vm where there are connectors but the connectors do not show in the queue.

According to other staff an update was done for CU 10 which may have caused this problem? Looking online i have tried adding alternative DNS servers to the ECP/Server Section which could apparently be a possible reason to why its not sending.

2 Servers - Exchange 2013 (Server 2012 R2) 1 Running AVG and One Running Sophos AV.

The Email just gets stuck in the Drafts. I have tried this but no success still ends up in draft.
I doubt CU10 is the cause of this.  Try a reboot of the server and make sure all of the Exchange services are started.
First telnet to your local exchange server and send e-mail using telnet and post the results.
