If you force the connection does it send? Verify that you can telnet to the 
remote domain's SMTP server. I'm not aware of any initial delay before sending, 
only retry intervals, but again this is only occuring for one domain and not 
globally. Also try enabling your SMTP logging, wait for the queue to clear, 
than send a test message to the domain, then check your SMTP logs to verify if 
an initial connection attempt is being made.

Subject: [ExchangeList] SMTP queue problem

-------------------------------------------------------Hi All!

I am having a problem with my SMTP outbound queue on Exchange 2003.

Outgoing messages remain in the "ready" state for sometimes up to an hour 
before being sent in batch for that domain. Messages accumulates before there 
is even an attempt to connect to the remote SMTP server.

Is there a timer before the first attempt?

Thanks for any insight.

Fred :-)
