Exchange Server 2007 shows email as "Receive" but not "Deliver"

Hi Guys
We have Exchange Server 2007 inside of a SBS 2008 set up.
One specific email from a regular sender wasn't received by the recipient. The recipient is used to receiving messages from this sender and the email is not hiding within Outlook.
Exchange 2007 mail tracker shows the email was received, but that's it. Nothing has happened to the email after that. Normally we'd see a "Deliver" report, or possibly a "Fail", but always something to show the email has been actioned
in some way.
The queues are all empty.
So, this one email has disappeared into the ether of Exchange! So far as I can see, this is the only email with only a "Receive" notification. All others have something else immediately following the Receive.
The Server has GFI anti-spam installed, but that hasn't seen the email either, because emails are collected by Exchange before being passed to GFI. In this instance it hasn't been passed, or returned to the sender as undeliverable. It just seems
to have been eaten.
Would anyone have any sensible suggestions on where to start kicking this email back into life?

Hi Simon
Apologies for the late response, but I only get to this client once a month.
1. Did the sender get NDR? ~ No
2. Let the receiver check the email via OWA and see
whether the email is available. ~ Still not available
3. Use MFCMAPI to check the user mailbox, can you
find the missing email? ~ I haven't yet worked out what is MFCMAPI or how to use it to check, but I suspect that as the Exchange email tracker doesn't have any actions after "Receive" that it cannot have sent the email on to the user's mailbox or rejected
the email as non-deliverable.
The client isn't too willing to expend too much effort
/ cost on this issue which does appear to be a one-off glitch, but I am interested in resolving it for myself as I haven't heard of this problem before.
Thanks for the interest,
Michael D

  • Email will receive but not send after installing os7 on iPhone 4S

    Email will receive but not send after installing os7 on iPhone 4S.   Checked all settings against iPad and second 4s phone and they appear identical.  Other devices work fine.

    Thanks Spaidr,
    That was part of it.  I did an end-around by setting up an alternate outgoing (send) server which was the same as the primary, identical settings, name, password.  I deselected the primary and used only the secondary.  Reboot as you suggested and Voila!  Something must have been corrupted in the primary.
    Thanks and hope this helps others.  

  • My o2 email will receive, but not send on my ipad

    My o2 email will receive, but not send. I've got other email accounts on the ipad & they all work OK. The o2 mail account used to work properly, but I needed to remove the account & since I've put it back on, it won't work on my ipad. Works ok on android mobile phone. I've checked the settings & spoken to o2, but they couldn't solve! It may be since I've joined the cloud? Any advice, gratefully received. Thanks.

    Recheck the settings once again.  There is something wrong.  And it seems to happen to O2 people with some regularity.    Google o2 mail settings and you will get a page with the details.  Pay close attention to the port setting, you may need to change it on the pad, and that may be the problem.

  • Exchange Server 2007 OWA users can receive email but can't send

    I have an Exchange server 2007 in an SBS 2008 environment with POP3 connector configured and working fine , smtp send mail connector configured. 
    Now users can connect to OWA, receive email but cant not send.
    smtp connector works fine from Outlook client. Tried to track the emails from exchange server management console and I get the
    The emails go to the sent items folder, but it never reach the recipients.
    Have been troubleshooting for a while without succes. Any help will be most appreciated.

    POP3 is a single mailbox client mail retrieval protocol, not a mail transport protocol. 
    Any attempt to use it as a mail transport protocol is a great big kludge. 
    Exchange is designed to connect to the Internet using SMTP.
    No version of Exchange has a POP3 connector.
    I recommend that you post this in the SBS Forum:

  • Iphone 6 email will receive but not send

    Since moving the stored iphone 4 backup to my iphone 6, I've been able to receive email on it but not send.  Should I remove the account and reenter all the account information or ... is there another option?

  • Icloud email can receive but not send on PC?

    With icloud emails on my iphone I can receive and send icloud emails. On my PC I can receive but not always send. When I try to send an icloud email I get this message: "This message cannot be sent at this time"

    I ran into this problem myself while connected via WI-FI last night and it was due to port 25 being blocked by my ISP. I recommend that you set up your Yahoo! e-mail account within iPhone. Go to Settings | Mail | Add Account... Yahoo will be the top choice.
    If you want to continue to use Yahoo via POP3/SMTP, then look at this link:

  • Email being received but not sent

    all of a sudden, my email stops sending (yet still receives). i get the following error message
    "This message could not be delivered and will remain in your Outbox until it can be delivered.
    Verify that you have addressed this message correctly. Check your SMTP server settings in Mail Preferences and verify any advanced settings with your system administrator."
    my email provider claims this is an Apple issue - having deleted and recreated email accounts
    the provider is
    ive tried different ports but they dont work either.

    How do you send them, presumably if you are complaining that they send OK with webmail you are using an email client, if so which one?
    What operating system does your computer use?
    Which email system are you on. Is it BTYahoo or BTMail? If you are not sure use this link.

  • Mail showing emails as 'sent' but not arriving with the recipient

    Hi, I have had this problem before and it seemed to clear itself up after a few weeks, but I wonder if there is some way I can clear it up now.
    I send emails from Mail as normal, and they are shown as 'sent'. But only some get through, and the majority don't. Is there some setting I can change, or some way I can see if my mails have arrived?
    Many thanks, Rose

    Same happened to me twice.  1 Message showed up days later.  also using iPhone

    As per the information and details provided by you, Exchange server 2007 stop receiving emails, then please follow these steps: -
    If you do have a 60 GB partition on the C: drive, one of the first signs of trouble is when the free space on C: drops below 2GB. Exchange 2007 stops receiving external
    emails. This is caused by a condition known as Back Pressure.
    Please check the following: -
    Check the nslook up for correct MX record.
    Run the exbpa and llok for any recent changes.
    Check for the device in perimeter network which accepts connections on port 25 FW or any other anti spam device).
    Try to run a telnet session from the firwall and then out side and drop email on the server.
    I hope this information will be helpful for you.
    Thanks and regards

  • MimeMessage.reply() issue with MS Exchange Server 2007 Emails

    I have an application that retrieves emails from an MS Exchange Server 2003 mailbox. The data from each message is read, validated and conditionally loaded to a table. If the message doesn't pass validation, a rejection email is sent back to the sender with an error message and a copy of the email. (We're using Java 1.5. However, I test with both 1.5 and 1.6.)
    Also, if the message passes validation, positive notification is sent back to the sender.
    Both processes use the method: javax.mail.Message.reply()It's coded as:
    MimeMessage reply = (MimeMessage) message.reply(false);My organization is in the process of migrating to MS Exchange Server 2007. We've found that the reply() method no longer finds the sender method, thus unable to create a reply message. The error message we receive is:
    javax.mail.SendFailedException: No recipient addresses
         at javax.mail.Transport.send0(
         at javax.mail.Transport.send(
         at org.ccci.gms.datacollector.DataCollector.sendReply(
         at org.ccci.gms.datacollector.DataCollector.processMessages(
         at org.ccci.gms.datacollector.DataCollector.main( creating the MimeMessage object from the reply() method, I printed out the email header detail from both 2003 and 2007 messages. You'll note from below that the "To" or recipient address is missing from Server 2007.
    MS Exchange 2003 works fine

    Subject: Re: Report
    In-Reply-To: <[email protected]>MS Exchange 2007 no longer works
    From: [email protected]
    Subject: Re: Reports
    In-Reply-To: <[email protected]>I know I could just use the "addRecipient()" method to get around this problem. I wanted to know if anyone has encountered this issue. Please share the resolution. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

    When the original message is accessed using IMAP, the reply method uses the information in the
    IMAP ENVELOPE to determine where to send the reply. It first looks for the Reply-To address
    in the ENVELOPE, then the From address.
    Interestingly, when not using IMAP, the getFrom method returns the Sender header if the From
    header is empty. The IMAP-specific code doesn't do that, although perhaps it should.
    It would be interesting to compare the ENVELOPE data from the protocol trace in the two cases.
    The ENVELOPE data will follow this syntax:
    envelope     = "(" env-date SP env-subject SP env-from SP
              env-sender SP env-reply-to SP env-to SP env-cc SP
              env-bcc SP env-in-reply-to SP env-message-id ")"
    So it's the first three address fields after the Subject that are relevant. If the From and Reply-To
    fields are NIL, but the Sender field has a valid address, let me know. I should probably fix the
    IMAP provider to fall back to the Sender field if the From field is missing.

  • How to move all emails from mailbox to an external email account in Exchange Server 2007?

    I have a user who is leaving the university in a few days. The user would like to forward all of their old emails from their mailbox to their G-mail account. Will setting up email forwarding forward all of the old emails to the G-mail account or just the
    new emails that are received after setting up email forwarding? If forwarding isn't the correct solution; then what is? We are running Exchange Server 2007.

    No, as you've suspected the forwarding will only affect new messages coming into the mailbox, not existing ones. Additionally, if you did get all existing messages to forward to another account (you could probably do it by creating a rule in Outlook) then
    the gmail account would show every single one of them as arriving now, and lose their existing send date.
    Probably a better option would be to export the mailbox to .pst, and then assuming the user has their gmail account configured in Outlook somewhere as something other than POP3 they can then open the .pst file on their machine and copy the messages over
    to their gmail account, which I think would also preserve the original information.
    You could do that via the server using Export-Mailbox as described here (note it has to be run from a 32-bit OS with the Exchange Management tools installed), or the user could just as easily do it themselves from within Outlook using the Export option.

  • Journaling - Exchange Server 2007 Outlook POP Email Account

    Hi there,
    My current setup:
    In Outlook
    Account 1: Exchange Server Email Account
    Account 2: Other Email accounts using POP setting (Only when outlook is open send/receive emails and used only via outlook)
    Email Store -Incoming
    Account 1: OST Cache -Inbox Folder
    Account 2 :Same as account 1 (Emails are replicated on Exchange Server) so they are available through OWA.
    Email Store - Outgoing
    Account 1: OST Cache –Sent Folder
    Account 2 :Same as account 1 (Emails are replicated on Exchange Server) so they are available through OWA
    All emails are stored on Exchange Mailbox.
    Now I will need to activate Journaling on Exchange Server 2007.
    Will all email be collected in journal (Exchange+POP)?
    If not how can this be done?
    I will need an automatic way of doing it (maybe using Outlook rules - received/send via a specific account).
    This is required as I am planning to implement
    GFI Mail Archiver.

    Exchange journaling only journals Exchange messages - it is not an Outlook-dependent system, nor does it journal everything that Outlook can access.  It is server-side only - messages sent through the Exchange system will be journaled because they hit
    the Exchange server; messages sent through POP accounts will not, since they never see the Exchange server.
    So, messages you receive in the POP mailbox will not be journaled, but since all messages you send go out through Exchange, they will all be journaled.
    Oh, and one more thing you need to know:  all messages that are already in your mailbox will not be journaled - Exchange journals what is delivered through the transport system, not what is in the mailboxes already.

  • Email encryption in Exchange Server 2007

    Dear Support Team,
    Now, current environment is Exchange Server 2007 and Outlook 2007. We have some question.
    1. How do I scan external/public domain before email sent out? Should I config in Exchange and Outlook 2007?
    2. How do I encrypted email? Do you suggested solution? required 3rd party? Exchange or outlook?
    3. Can I encrypted email only email that send to external email?
    Thank you.

    According to the descritpion, I know that you want to make sure the messages that you sent out be safe.
    Please refer information below:
    Encrypt all outgoing messages
    Choosing to encrypt all outgoing messages means, in effect, your e-mail is encrypted by default. You can write and send messages the same as with any other e-mail messages, but all potential recipients must have your digital ID to decode your messages.
    On the Tools menu, click Trust Center, and then click
    E-mail Security.
    Under Encrypted e-mail, select the
    Encrypt contents and attachments for outgoing messages check box.
    To change additional settings, such as choosing a specific certificate to use, click
    Click OK twice.
    More details to see:
    Please correct me if there is any misunderstanding.
