I set up an exchange 2k3 server. it had 2 nics. one had a static addy, the 
other was dhcp(it got all the dns info from dhcp as well). the dhcp lease was 
set for 3 days

In this setup, mail was stuck in the queues for hours. sometimes days, but 
eventually delivered.
the moment i disabled the dhcp nic, mail started flowing normally.

any idea why 2 nics(or dhcp) would cause this?
i never saw any MS kb's about mlti homed exchange being a bad idea OR dhcp.
