Mail in Exchange "Badmail", after downloading with POP3 Connector

    Hello,

    I have a bunch of mail sitting in the badmail folder under my Mailroot\vsi 1
    directory on my newly installed SBS 2003 server. Of course it is gone from
    my POP3 boxes at my ISP, and several non-delivery messages were delivered to
    my mailboxes for mail that was downloaded from the POP3 connector.

    Is there a way to re-submit this mail to Excahnge to be re-distributed, or
    is there a way that I can manually move the mail where it is supposed to be?

    Thanks,
    Brian

    Hi Brian,

    Thanks for posting here!

    From your description, I understand that you would like to know if you can
    re-handle the mails in the badmail folder. If I have misunderstood your
    concern, please let me know.

    Generally, when an e-mail is undeliverable by the exchange, the Simple Mail
    Transfer Protocol (SMTP) service returns it to the sender with a
    non-delivery report (NDR). If the NDR cannot be delivered to the sender, a
    copy of the message is put in the Badmail directory.

    As I know, there is no way to move the mails in the badmail folder to the
    pickup folder for exchange to re-distribute as well as into user mailboxes
    directly.

    For your information:

    If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to let me know.
    It's my pleasure to be of assistance.
