    Hi all,

    Thought it strange that one server did it and put it to the bottom of the
    work list but another server has done it now after a reboot.

    All old emails that were rejected cos users either spelt name wrong or
    domain name wrong for about 4 - 6 weeks ago have appeared in users mailboxes
    again.

    Appreciate any investigative ideas any one can provide or a solution of
    course...lol

  2. What file-level antivirus software are you running on the server, and is it
    set up to exclude the Exchange database/queue/log folders?

    Hi Lanwench, thanks for input.

    Did think of AV scanning and on both servers the Whole Exchsvr folder is
    excluded.

    Thanks Again.

    Thanks for that Alan, we saw that also but it mentions....
    Note This article does not apply to Windows 2003 servers that are running
    Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003. This article applies only to Windows Servers
    that are running the SMTP Service without Exchange 2000 or Exchange 2003.

    Weird that we have the same symptoms, especially when some emails have the
    'greylisted' mentioned. However we cannot confirm the state of the 'queue'
    folder on the hard drive. We can definately confirm nothing in the exchange
    queues before reboot as this is part of server check whilst updates
    applying.

    Its frustrating as there were 3 other servers updated at the time this
    second server showing the symptoms and they were ok!

    Thanks Again Allan
