Next time it happens, try flushing the DNS cache on the server.

Subject: [exchangelist] Mail Queue blocked.

I have a pesky problem that seems to have arisen out of the blue.  Mail is
queuing in the C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\vsi 1\Queue

We are running Exchange 2003 on a Win 2003 server (non-DC) we have a
connector to the ISA Server (Win 2003)


Mail is flowing internally and we are receiving mail from outside, but the
mail to go out keeps queuing up.


I HAVE found a solution, but it is a drastic one - shutting down and
restarting the Exchange Server.  That clears the backlog.


I have stop and started separately all the Exchange Services and the SMTP
service on the Exchange server, but this does not fix the problem - only a
complete reboot.

I can't find anything in the event logs to point to the problem.


Appreciate any feedback.  Thanks.
