The best way to monitor the SMTP queue is to use the Performance monitor
and monitor the SMTP Server Queue Length. You can configure alerts if
the queue keeps growing beyond a time threshold. This is what I do to
monitor queues.

To delete the message from the queue, you enumerate the messages from
the Exchange System Manager and right click and delete with NDR or
delete without NDR. Or you can right click on the queue name and do the
same for all messaged (Is this your question?)

Force connection will force a queue that is in retry mode to attempt a
connection immediately without waiting for the next retry timeout. I am
not sure if this does any prioritizing.

Subject: [exchangelist] SMPT Virtual Server Queue Stuck

I had an issue this morning with some emails being delivered and others
were not. I looked at the queue and one was stuck on a job from the
27th. I froze this queue.

Question 1: How can I avoid finding this out "the hard way" in the

Question 2: How can I permanently delete the queue from the list vs. the
frozen mode?

Question 3: Is there a way to prioritize this queue, so I can make one
queue go ahead of another? Is it Force Connection?

Thanks ahead of time...
