Mails stuck in the draft folder RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have installed Exchange Server 2007 Sp1 on  Windows Server 2008 R2. Every time any user is  trying to send a mail (via both OWA and Outlook ) it stuck in the  draft folder.

    I followed the following threads but didn't get success.

    I would be so grateful If you could help me to fix this issue.

     

    Warm Regards,

  • Exchange 2007 SP1 is not supported on Windows 2008 R2.

    In fact, Exchange 2007 SP3 is only supported as a fresh install on 2008 R2:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff607226(EXCHG.80).aspx

    Exchange 2007 SP3 provides support only for a new installation of Exchange on Windows Server 2008 R2. Exchange 2007 SP3 is not supported in an upgrade scenario on Windows Server 2008 R2. For example, Exchange 2007 SP3 does not support the following installation scenarios:

    A new Exchange 2007 SP3 installation on a Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer that has been upgraded from Windows Server 2008

    Upgrading Exchange 2007 SP2 to Exchange 2007 SP3 on a Windows Server 2008 R2-based computer that has been upgraded from Windows Server 2008

    Upgrading the operating system from Windows Server 2008 to Windows Server 2008 R2 on a computer that has Exchange 2007 SP3 installed

  • Hi,

    We have installed Exchange Server 2007 Sp1 on  Windows Server 2008 R2.

    Exchange 2007 is not supported on Windows Server 2008 R2. Only fresh installation of Exchange 2007 SP3 is supported on Windows 2008R2.
    Try to update the server and post the update.. 

    Is it internal email or External email?
