E-mails goes in the queue

By cproctor ·
I sent an e-mail from home to all the people who was attending class for trial director one Monday morning. When I get to the office, I fine out my e-mail did not go out. So I sent another e-mail to the same group of people. A month later, when we rebooted the system here in Memphis that's when they receive my e-mail I sent from home. Needless to say the people were very confused when they receive the e-mail dated back one month prior to that day. This has happened in our other offices as well, but only after we rebooted the server.
This is what happens:
Sometimes when you send an e-mail, Microsoft exchange does not recognize that email to be valid or just don't know what to do with the e-mail. So Microsoft exchange then puts the e-mail in a "queue" and when the server is rebooted, That's when exchange realizes you have e-mails in the queue to be sent out. That's why when the power goes out, or we reboot the servers, users or clients get e-mails that were actually sent prior to the server rebooting. This happens in our office or send an Internet e-mail. I look in the sent items folder and I can see that the e-mail has been sent, but the user never get's the e-mail. We are running exchange 2000 and any help would be appreciated
