Sounds related to back pressure ... http://exchangeserverpro.com/exchange-transport-server-back-pressure/

How much free space do you have remaining on your Exchange server?

Commented:
It was low on space. The thing that threw me off was in information in the event log. Usually it would read something like this:

Event Type: Error
Event Source: MSExchangeTransport
Event Category: Resource Manager
Event ID: 15006
Description: The Microsoft Exchange Transport service is rejecting messages because available disk space is below the configured threshold. Administrative action may be required to free disk space for the service to continue operations.

Does that mean the issue is resolved for you after freeing up sufficient disk space?

Yes,mail flow started working after clearing out space. My question is: why the event ID did not provide the correct description.

I would suspect that because disk space was so low that the transport service wasn't running and that's why the event was written the way it was.  Maybe the managed assistant was attempting to fix something at the same time the event was written.  Not seeing the entire context of the event, I can only guess.

Do you have an antivirus product on the specific server?
