We are using Exchange Server 2003 as our Mail Server with a Front end and two clustered Back-end Servers.From past few weeks our SMTP connector is getting disconneted and the external mails are getting stuck in the queue.When we check the queue information it says that "SMTP Connetor cannot connect to the remote server". Then once we restart the Exchange Front End then the queue gets free and the mails will get delivered.This is hapening randomly for every 2 or 3 days. So anyone please help me solve this problem.

Hi,

I have checked the Application and Event logs and i have already installed and all the patches and latest updates but still the problem continues.
Is this is related to the hardware performence or any false SMTP connector issues?
