email not being sent?


I have an Exchange server 2003.
We use outlook 2000.

I have had this recurring problem that raises its head from time to
time.
We have about 100 users. Generally everything works.

But from time to time an individual workstations that worked fine
before now stops being able to send mail. It can receive mail ok.

What happens is that when the mail is sent it disappears from the out
mail box but is not delivered. It just disappears into never never
land.

On this one computer I even logged in as myself instead of the user,
set up my outlook mail account and same thing. In other words its
something about the individual computer. My mail works find from my
other workstation, It has nothing as far as I can tell with Exchange.
Other computers work fine. It's just every once and a while one
computer exhibits this behaviour.

But here is one other bit of info. Sometimes when I make some sort of
change to the configuration and then try to send an email it works.
But then if I close the email and log out of the email (not the user
login) and then open the email again. Its goes back to not working.
It's almost like if I poking it a bit, then it works for that session
but if I close the mail it stops working, until I change some setting
and then it starts working again for that session. However it is
unrelated to one specific setting, there are several settings like,
save outgoing mail turn off, close mail then open again and turn back
on and it works for that session. But other settings cause it to
function properly for that session as well.

Sadly I dont have access to this users machine all the time, as they
are doing work, so suggestions you make may not be able to be tested
immediately but has anyone seen this or can you provide any insight
into this issue.

I have tried giving the microsoft office folder domain users
permission on the local ws, thinking that might be it, I have changed
every setting I can on the workstation and accept for the aspect that
it sometimes works until mail is closed nothing makes it permenent so
that it just works when opened every time.

Hi,

I have successfully sent and received emails from ms outlook 2000, this
check confirms that all my internet connection details are correct when
using an ADSL Speedtouch modem. .

BUT

when i automate outlook through ms access 2000, i manage to get the
emails to sit inside the outbox and when i manually click send and
receive it confirms that the emails have been sent, but i know they
have not been sent because the emails are still present in the outbox.
I am just sending test emails containing an email address and something
in the subject, i removed the attachment incase it was the problem.

I have done a repair on office 2000 and am unsure of why the automated
emails are not being sent, but manually written emails are being sent
and received.

Can any one help or guide me in the right direction.

All,

I've got an application that automates Outlook 2003. Up until recently,
everything was working fine.

Then, all of the sudden, an issue started appearing. Here's the details.

1) When Outlook was not open (running in the background via the
CreateObject("Outlook Application"), the email would not be sent, and would
appear in the Inbox Folder with the message "This message has not been sent"
in a gray bar across the top.

2) With Outlook open (appearing in the task bar), the email would be sent
as it should. No issues would be encountered.

Any and all help would be appreciated!! I'm about at my wits end.




Can you make a rule in exchange to allow internal broadcast email to not be sent to junk folder?

We send out broadcast emails to the outside and also to internal users on our network, but the emails are going straight to the junk folder.  Is there any way to prevent this from happening?  Is there a global setting in exchange that would allow blast emails coming from a certain person on the network not to be labeled as junk?

I know there is a setting in each users personal outlook settings, but is there a way that I could force internal users to see the broadcast email in their inbox instead of junk box.

Thanks for your time




I'm trying to use an Exchange Server to send emails from asp.net web application and atm the mail is getting stuck in the drafts folder and not being sent.
Emails are being sent fine if i send them using browser or outlook directly. Also if i go to the drafts folder and manually send the vb.net created emails they re being sent and received fine aswell, but that isn't a long term option. If anyone has any idea what is the problem i'ld appreciate the input.
Here is the relevant part of the code i m using.

Code: Try Dim service As ExchangeService Dim service As New ExchangeService(ExchangeVersion.Exchange2007_SP1) service.Credentials = New WebCredentials(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("Username"), _ System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("Password")) service.Url = New Uri(System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager.AppSettings("ExchangeServer")) Dim message As New EmailMessage(service) message.Subject = New String("Test") message.Body = New String("Just testing") message.ToRecipients.Add(name, email) message.SendAndSaveCopy() Catch ex As Exception Return False End Try Return True




We have updated to SP2 and installed mailmarshal. I had a feeling for a
while that some email wasnt being relayed and sure enough there are some
emails stuck in a queue to external domains. I also had a load of 4.4.7
NDRs sent.

External email DOES work as I can send and receive some messages but not
everything is going out.

Does anyone have any advice?

Hello,
first time poster long time lurker. I have found the tutorials on this site very useful and continue to learn new things from them and these boards.

I'm a bit of a Exchange newb so apologies if I ask some stupid questions.

We are using SBS 2003 SP2 and are have a problem that is proving hard to diagnose as it's not happening to every email. We noticed that some emails that appear to have been sent will not be received by the recipient until the SMTP service on our SBS was restarted, and then the SMTP entries in the Message History for that massage in the Message Tracking Center is shown twice.  
 
If you look at the picture below you see the first lot of SMTP entries dated 19/04/2010 this was when the message was actually sent by one of our users via Outlook, this email was not received.
On 09/06/2010 we restarted our SBS, which like I said above we were able to narrow down to just restarting the SMTP service. Now a second lot of SMTP entries are listed and this time the message is received, however the recipient receives it with the original sent date, in this case 19/04/2010.

Many thanks in advance,
Matt.




I have a client who has a SBS Server 2003 and has all staff using outlook
2003. They are all connected to the exchange server, and are only using it to
store email (for central backup) and shared calandars. Their email is done
through an externally hosted server and is accessed via POP3.

I realize this is not the best setup, but for right now they do not want to
host their own email.

The problem happens when USER1 sends an email to USER2 and it ends up
sending through the exchange server. USER2 then decides that they are going
to forward this email to an external user. Outlook tries to send it through
the exchange server, which of course goes nowhere.

Without having to manually change which account the email is being sent out
through is there a way to instruct outlook to always send email through the
external account instead of picking based on where it came from?

I'm by no means an exchange expert, so maybe this is an easy thing to fix.
Any and all ideas, or suggestions are very much welcome. If you see a better
way to do this I am open to all ideas.

My Outlook 2010 has suddenly decided not to allow emails to be sent. I am receiving fine but when I go to send an email it attempts for some reason to try to send 2 emails, one of which isnt there!!. This is then causing a time out error message saying that there is nor reply from the server. I have been onto my ISP and all settings are o.k. My Blackberry is also sending and recieving ok. It is as if there is an email stuck in Outlook that I cannot find and is obviously quite large causing the time out. On occasions, instead of reading sending mail, it will read preparing to send mail .... then nothing happens.

Can anyone help please as I am losing valuable work through this.

Many thanks

When using Outlook on Windows, if I went to the options of the email being
sent,
I could schedule when that email would be sent.
However, with Outlook 5 or Entourage for the Mac, I can not seem to find a
way to schedule
when that one particular mail can be sent. Instead, it just has "Send
Later" which means
upon the next time that I open Outlook.
In other words, I would like to schedule a date and time for that mail to be
sent instead
of just later.
Can this be done with the Mac or only with Windows Versions?

Hello,

I am trying to set up email merge for the emails to be sent from different
email address other than my own.

Things to consider:
-I am using outlook 2007
-from email address is not actually an email address, but a Distribution
List alias
-I do not want to install any additional softwares to achieve this

I've read that this is not really possible, but I figured someone had a
macro of some sort to make it possible.

Thanks.




Hello All,

I have a client who recently switched from using Exchange 5.5 to a simple
POP3 email server. Since then his Outbox has been showing read receipts that
are not being sent. I've checked all his settings and Outlook is configured
to automatically send all read receipts when connected to the internet,
which is all the time as he has a broadband connection.

There is no longer a reference in his Outlook configuration for the Exchange
server. I've Googled this issue but have come up dry. Can anyone provide
some insight as to why these are being held? Oh, inbound and outbound emails
work just fine. It's only the read receipts.

thanks!

Troy

Dear Tom,

I have a comment. Maybe like 35 emails to be sent.

Signed, Orlin from Orlinhome

P.S. : Mail to us




I am using a signature for my emails that contains an email link to which the
receipient can respond to my emails - it is a different email address than
the one I am using. Somehow this link is being blocked by the Outlook
settings from being sent. The email will show as sent, but never reaches the
server. If I take out the email link from the signature, the email sends
just fine.
Any ideas of what settings to change?
Thanks!




Hi

I am noticing a weird behavior of Outlook 2007:

Some of my emails, upon being sent appear in the INBOX and not in the SENT
folder.

I have tried to determine any pattern, but it escapes me.

Do I have to fix one of my settings?

Thanks

Don S.




Sometimes some of the senders keep reciving an error trying to send me an
email.

This message could not be sent. Try sending the message again later, or
contact your network administrator. The client operation failed. Error is
[0x80004005-00000000-0x000501].

I have got Exchange 2003

Is it a problem on their side ?
