  • SMTP Server Remote Queue Length Alert

    Hello Everybody,

    I just statred to get this in my SBS health log. Is there a quick fix?

    A large number of messages are pending in the e-mail server send queue.

    Verify that you have Internet connectivity. If you can view Web sites normally, contact your Internet service provider (ISP) to determine if there is a problem with their e-mail server.

    You can disable this alert or change its threshold by using the Change Alert Notifications task in the Server Management Monitoring and Reporting taskpad.

    Thanks in advance for your help,

    If you look in the queues do they show a large number of messages?
    That "error" is notorious for alerting you and by the time you get to the server the messages have been delivered. You need to look at the queues first and then look to see if there is a problem or if it is a false positive.
