Ocassional messages delayed delivery

Some of my customers are telling me that some messages are taking hours and
sometimes a day to be delivered. I have them send a message to
nobody@compaq.com and it comes back NDR in a hurry.  There does not seem to
be a pattern.  Is there a way to tell if messages are being hung in my
inbound queue?  Why would some messages get hung and not others?

Thanks,
Fred

Open the Exchange System Manager, then expand Servers container (if you see
Administrative Groups and not server, then Expand AG's, then your AG, then
server), Expand the server object, then expand protocols, expand SMTP.
You'll be able to view the Queue's there.

My guess is that it's not stuck in the queues, but rather traveling the
internet trying to be routed to the destination based on DNS queries and IP
hops.

Since you get the NDR back so quickly, it may not even be an internet/DNS
thing but a problem on the destination server in that it's not routing to
the users in a timely manner or they are trying to do a reverse lookup.

Slow delivery
In my organisation we are using outlook 2000/XP with exchange server 2003. The delivery of messages is slow, messages stay in outbox after being send until you click another folder.

Rule to delete message after x days

I cannot find a rule which would allow this -- I can only delete when received or on exit. Thanks for your help .... RWB That's the kind of thing that autoarchive is good for.
