We are using Exchange 2000 Build 6249.4 with service pack 3.
Our clients are mostly on Windows 2000 service pack 3 with Outlook
When the clients set out of office and choose to forward all messages
to an external email address, the forwarding is not done. When I look
in the message tracker for the specific messageI see the last line
entry under the message history as "SMTP: Message submitted to
categorizer". However, the clients do send the "I am out of office
response" to the sender of the email.
I have turned on diagnostic logging for SMTP and when I checked the
c:\exchsrvr\myserver.log and I do not see the message as being sent,
although I see other non vacation related messages as being sent. I
have turned on the categorizer log, but I am not sure which directory
the log is stored in.
I checked in the BadMail directory and all the files there are in
binary format so I cannot read them. I did open the files using
notepad, write and even IE, but there is hardly any line readable in
them. There seem to be a number of posts listed in this newsgroup
about messages not being delivered after "SMTP: Message submitted to
categorized" however none of the posts I saw in this newsgroup so far
seem to give any clue...
