Yes, I wanted him to try disabling the service then restarting the
server, since restarting the server seems to temporarily correct the
issue. Not sure if he was just disabling the service then restarting his
Exchange services since just restarting SMTP seems to not correct it but
requires a full reboot.

That was the first thing we did, but no joy

Did you try disabling your AV first then restarting your server?

thanks, I will try this, but would explain why stopping th smtp service
is practically impossible, and requires the server to be rebooted to get
it back to a good state

Check if your FQDN is resolving from your Exchange server. If it is
resolving, check if you get alternate IPs of your DCs (If you have
multiple DCs).

Check if the DC mentioned in your Recipient update service is up and
running, If so check if that DC is listed in the Nameserver tab in your
DNS server.

This seems to be a DNS issue and not an SMTP issue. 

 

Even I have faced a problem like this before in one of our organization.
What happened was the administrators there have removed the DC (Which
was being configured in RUS) from the nameserver tab since that DC did
not have DNS service running and they would like to allow zone transfer
for all nameserver's running DNS. It is mere stupidity.... 

 

Thanks, Mahadevan

All services are running, and we have tried disabling Mc Afee, but no
joy. Mails just seem to get stuck in the queue. The only way to get some
of them moving is to reboot the server. Even trying to restart the sntp
service would throw the server into an unresponsive state.

 

This is getting pretty dire, and I am not quite sure what the problem
is. I have instructed a reinstallation of Exch 2003 sp2. From what I can
see the smtp service is not working as smoothly as I would want. Just
wondering if it corrupt? I just dont know.

        Hi Guys,
