Great stuff, cos this is exactly what we are experiencing. I have heard it said that this is a common problem with Exch 2003 SBS, anyone heard that here?

We have a similiar problem.
Mails get stuck in the following queues:
-          Messages awaiting directory lookup
-          Messages pending submission
I can?t find a system in the crashes/hangs?( they are not on regular basis)
In out case it is the inetinfo (IIS) process that hangs, and crashes when trying to stop the services.
We opened a case and are working with Microsoft to find a solution.
I already installed a lot of debugging tools that collected a lot of logs, but it seems to be not easy to point to the problem?
It seems to me that SMTP becomes irresponsive in ?a certain condition?, some kind of mail that messes up SMTP ???
What I do to come quick online without robooting:
-          Kill inetinfo.exe
-          Resart services
If we find some solution I?ll let you know?

I would also turn diagnostic logging to max for all counters for transport and report back your events. Do you recall anything being updated installed or changed?

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.
