Hi:
 
We currently have MX server before the Exchange Server which is a Linux Box
and does the job of Spam and virus cleaning before transferring to the
Exchange Server. We have port 25 open on the firewall of the Exchange Server
as well. The incidence has not just happened for one or 2 mails but atleast
20-25 mails spread across the month of Feb and March. However the strange
part is that it has not affected all the old mails but just a few. To share
some more information some mails were delivered twice while others were only
delivered on the restart of the server. Also in couple of cases the mails
have reached 2 recipients but failed to reach the third which only received
on the rebooting of the server.
 
Thanks & Regards 
Mitul Zaveri

A key question to ask.
 
Do you have an smtp relay between your excnahge server and your firewall.?
If so you might have encountered a transfer error, But I am inclinded to
think that time was just a mail which got looped and stuck in the queue. I
have senn this happen before were malformed mails get stuck in smtp queue,
and get flushed on restart of server.

http://www.msexchange.org
-------------------------------------------------------Dear All: 

I am using Exchange 2003 SP2 + Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition as Exchange
Server. I have another Windows 2003 Enterprise Edition server configured as
Active Directory Server. 

I recently faced a strange issue whereby one of my user has send a few mails
in the month of March 2007 which just got delivered yesterday after I
rebooted the server after applying Windows Critical patches. However the
strange part is when I check for the message in the Tracking Centre it
showed that it was submitted to the SMTP Queue in March immediately when the
message was sent and staying there until it got flushed and delivered on
rebooting the server. This happened with quite a few messages in March 2007.


It is strange in nature as it stayed in the SMTP queue without even
attempting to make a SMTP connection. I am failing to understand as how can
this happen. Can anyone help us troubleshoot the same. 

Thanks & Regards
Mitul Zaveri
