    Exchange 2007, Emails wont send HELP!!!

    Hi all, me again!

    Our head guy is still away and my very limited server knowledge is getting the better of me.
    Our Exchange 2007 server is not sending anything and staff are wanting to use it like NOW!

    All of the emails that anyone on site tries to send are sitting in their outbox. I have done a full restart of the server and tried to restart all Exchange Services on the server; to no avail.

    Hi,

    I'm assuming that internal emails don't send either, we're not just talking about emails to external addresses?

    have you checked that all services that look exchange related have started okay? Anything in event viewer>

    I'm used to 2010 rather than 2007, so might be a bit different but I'd load the exchange management console and look in toolbox for something like queue viewer. It mnay give you a clue as to what's happening.

    Thanks for the fast post Meldrew,
    No internal emails are not sending either. No bouncebacks from internal or external when trying to send.
    I have restarted all services related to Exchange. Each seemed to come back alive without any trouble.
    I have also checked the Queue viewer and it seems to be empty...

    This is driving me insane, plus the firebreathing down my neck is hot!

    I just spoke to a couple guys who I used to work with, they suggested my server might be out of space but with over 2.5GB left on the Data drive I didn't think that would be right?

    Going to try extending the VHD as the server is Virtual.

    Yeah, space would do it - again, assuming its very similar to 2010, the databases (mail stores to you and me) and log files can all be put on different drives if required. Does your server have just a C drive or more drives that might have run out of space?

    Anything in the event log? this sounds like the hub transport role playing up. This can happen if it has picked up the wrong certificate or it has expired. The space thing is also a good thing to look at.

    Thanks for the suggestions guys, turned out to be a space thing. Our log files from 30th July 2014 (all 120,563 of them) were taking up 1mb each. Our 300gb drive didn't like it.

    The C:\ is a VHD, the D:\ points elsewhere via a share.

    I've copied half of our logs to C:\ which has free'd up around 70-80 Gig. Hopefully our network manager is back before it fills up again.

    Glad you've got it sorted for the time being - no more breathing down the neck. The logs should be automatically cleared after a successful backup, so I think your exchange backups must be failing.
