Random messages are very delayed delivery RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had to reboot all my exchange servers the other day for patching and some users either received some NDR's for messages they tried sending over a week ago or the message was then sent and the recipient replied stating the extreme delay in receiving the message.  So it seems like my Exchange servers are holding random sent messages beyond the timeouts and not returning the NDR to the user until the smtp service is restarted.  Anyone else having or seen this behavior.

    Please help!
