Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet
- 2003 Exchange server on 2003 Windows Server
- Domain controller, active directory and ISA all on same machine
- Simple straight forward setup and configuration
- Exchange does not receive emails directly by MX Record but picks them up by POP3
- Suddenly, after power outage, exchange stopped sending/receiving emails, even locally within the local domain
- Outdated Outlook clients mailboxes are updated until the emails sent/received until the outage
- Emails are sent from Outlook with no error, but they stay in the queue (can be tracked)
- In the Monitor, the "SMTP Queues Growth" is more than 1000 minutes
- When Outlook tries to receive emails it gives error 0x80004005
- In the Event Viewer, Applications, I fixed an error related to offline address book but there are still warnings/errors MSExchangeSA ID 9116 and 9331, and MSExchangeIS 9548.
You need to first check all connector related to Emails, if they are working properly. You can check receive connector by going into Server Configuration then Hub Transport and then you will see Receive Connectors are listed at right side below to server name. Just enable all receive connectors.
You can check for send connector in Organization Configuration then Hub Transport and then at right side in Send Connectors Tab. Enable all send connectors. Now check for services by going through Server Manager in start menu. In server manager window Click on Configuration then click on Services. You can check below displayed image of server manager for details.
Now check for send / receive.
If you are still getting send / receive error then defragment exchange database edb file.
You can defragment edb file using Exchange Management Shell by executing this command:ESEUTIL /d "c:\edbfilename.edb" you can see its in displayed image. Now check for send / receive mails.

Hello there. I would just like to share with you simple steps how I checked on this issue we encountered just a few weeks back.
First thing to check is to make sure that all Exchange related services are started. You can check that on the Services panel. Next is to check if the POP3 service is running on the exchange manager console. So after this, i was able to send receive emails again.
Unfortunately, in my case, that did not still fix the queue issue. What you need to do is to defrag the exchange database. Defrag in exchange is different from doing a system defrag of your OS. Please refer to the steps below from Microsoft. But make sure that you backup the exchange database first as this is a very crucial stage for your emails.
This is from MS:
Create a batch file and copy the ff:
net stop msexchangemta
net stop msexchangeis
net stop msexchangesa
"c:program filesexchsrvrineseutil.exe" /d C:ExchangeDatapriv1.edb
net start msexchangesa
net start msexchangeis
net start msexchangemta
Note: Point the .edb file to the appropriate path where your Exchange DB is located.
Run this after making sure that you have a backup.
Hope this helps.
