Exchange 2007 SP1 Sending email problem with OWA and Outlook

I know I mentioned that I would be finishing up my post of the migration from Srandard Server 2003 to SBS 2008 but I am still working on that but this will apply to SBS 2008 also because it is running Exchange 2007 SP1.

What I run into today was I had a customer who called and they have Exchange 2007 SP1 and they could not send email from OWA or Outlook everything would end up in their Drafts folder. Which if you think about it true as when you send a email it goes through the Drafts folder then on. So any email sent would stop at the Drafts folder when they sent email. What I found was that the Hub Transport on the Server requires 4 Gigs of drive space to send email or you will see the deal I was with the email stopping in the Drafts folder. I found that the drive that the Exchange was installed to had only 1.61 Gigs of drive space. So I cleared up some room on the drive and then restarted the Exchange Transport Service and away the email went problem solved and life was good.

What had happened was the customer had moved a large amount of files over to that drive to store and about filed it up. They are moving them somewhere else as I type so this won’t happen again.

Til later just Roger
