Message Delivery is Delayed

    Question

  • Windows 2000 Server SP4 with Exchange 2000 SP3

     

    Event ID 4000 in MSExchangeTransport are being logged.  Messages are stalling in the queue and senders receive NDR's that the message is delayed with SMTP error 4.4.7   Could not deliver the message in the time limit specified.

     

    I turned on maximum logging on ExchangeTransport and got several errors like this

     

    Message delivery to the remote domain 'email.uky.edu' failed for the following reason: Unable to open the message for delivery

     

    Are there any particular settings that need to be reviewed or reset?

     

    Thanks!

    Hi,

     

    Have a look at the following KB article from Microsoft:

     

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/919091

     

    Especially the Metabase one in step 6 is one that usually fixes this issue.

     

    Regards,

    Thanks for the response.  After reading  KB919091 article I don't have the same symptoms that are being described.  All of my DB's are mounted and appear to functioning properly.  I found KB909955 that describes the problem I am having but I don't have hotfix 826948 installed.  There is a hotfix available from that article--I have not yet applied it.

     

    Thanks

    David
