Exchange 5.5 Internet Mail Service

By Steenkbug ·
Recently our internet mail service stopped working (thus making our custom recipients not able to receive mail) When you try to restart the service it is a no go. It times out and will not respond. I have tried removing and reinstalling the service but no jive. SP3 was recently installed, but these problems occoured right before SP3 was installed... Any ideas?

Exchange 5.5 Internet Mail Service

by yhoosucksrocks In reply to Exchange 5.5 Internet Mai ...

We have seen this issue for some time now.
We setup a secont server as the main exchange server without the internet mail connector (IMC), and use the old server just for IMC. This way if IMC stops it only affects internet traffic. We have found that when the IMC locks up we have to uninstall it, clear the queues, reinstall, and reconfigure... a real pain. We have an open incident with Microsoft so you may find some helpful patches at their site.
