    Hi there,
    Thats Ok.
    The messages remain on the queue as much time as the IMC is configured
for. I mean, The messages have a time-out to be delivered. After that, the
message leaves the queue and go back to the sender with a NDR (Non Delivery
Report). You can increase the time (the messages will stay at the queue
longer) or do the opposite to get the messages off the queue fastly. I am
not sure but I think the default value is 72 hours.

Importance: High

Hello All,
    We have Exchange 5.5 SP4 on Windows NT 4.0 with SP 6a. When I check
Internet Mail Service Queue, I see that some of messages remain and when I
check the details, it says "host unreachable" althoug our DNS works
properly. I checked it with nslookup on mail server ant it returns the mx
records of these "unreachable" domains.
Any idea?
