  • undeliverable messages

    http://forums.petri.com/showthread.p...=Undeliverable

    Hi I have a similar problem as the above post.

    Exchange 2003 SBE
    Sophos desktop and puremessage

    After bring up the server form a power outage many users received undeliverable mail reports stretching back up to a few weeks.

    As suggested in the above post I have checked sophos and found it is scanning all directories, presumably this changed after a recent upgrade.

    Can anyone shed any more light on why these messages are not released/available until the reboot?

    Thanks

    Simple - the AV software scans the messages (which it shouldn't do), and hangs on to the messages. Then when the server is rebooted and the service stopped the lock on the message are released and Exchange can deliver them.

    It may also be the greylisting bug.
