MTA : Outbound queue filling up (Unable to read message content
Created: 04 Nov 2007 • Updated: 21 May 2010 | 2 comments
I've been seeing a problem with the outbound mail queue on a SMSSMTP 5.0.1 server. Messages are not delivered and instead continually build up in the outbound queue.
Here's an example error from the MTA log:
Unable to open message content file
(note the double backslash before the message file in this path).
The file does in fact exist at that path without that extraneous backslash (i.e., at D:\Symantec\SMSSMTP\mta\outbound\queue\16\16\f10014e4654440010926a90e9b2264ff ).
Does anyone know how or why the path to the queue file is referenced incorrectly here? and anyway to flush this mail in such a case?
