I hope any of you knows a solution to the following problem:
When a connection to the ISP already has been established, sending and
receiving mail is no problem. However, when any of the users send e-mail
from their workstations and there is no active connection to the ISP, their
message are queued and can be found in the Internet Mail Service Properties
page in the Queues tab.
One might expect messages to be sent as soon as, either through the Proxy
server auto-connection or the Auto Dial Up Connections Properties as set in
the Internet Mail Service, is established.
Well, they aren't sent. They just keep sitting there in the queue waiting
for X-mas and Thanksgiving to be on one day....
Does this have something to do with the fact that Exchange waits for an ETRN
from the ISP before sending mail?
If this is the case, how can I overidde these settings and let Exchange try
as often as possible to sent the messages in order to get rid of them?
If anyone might have a clue or need more details about my settings, please
let me know, I am really looking for a solution to this problem.
Many thanks in advance,
