Have you restarted the internet mail connector?  Did you move any of the
messages from the queue without restarting the mail connector?  Detail the
steps you have taken so far...

Also realize that some of the messages may be NDR's or bouncebacks to
non-existant domains and are just in the queue trying to be delivered.
(depending on how your infrastructure has been setup).   If they are NDR's,
bouncebacks, or other similar messages going to domains that can not be
found, they will delete after expiration per your 'retry interval' as set in
your configuration.

Dear All,

I am running Exchange 5.5 on Windows 2000. We have problem over the weekend
and mail was being delivered using smtp but all was being held under
c:\inetpub\queue directory under the server. We are able to see the mail
queue but we are unable to get this mail distributed to users via exchange.
Any new mail is coming through but old mail is still held there. Any clue
what I need to do? Please help.

Thanks in advance.
