Recently I have found a problem with transferring voice mail between sites.
Transferring Voice mail from same site to same site works fine, but when we try to transfer to a remote site, it doesn?t transfer.
When the server reboots, all of the voice mails that were waiting to transfer push through at once.
Has anyone run into this problem, or a way to resolve it? Can it be as simple as restarting a service?
After the reboot it works fine for a few weeks, and then at some random time it stops transferring.
man, Im good! (good guessing)
Depends on the fowarding. It's mostly DNS that handles this and then Exchange has to allow fowarding from another domain. (allowing this in the Exchange server SMTP) It's basically relying messages, and normally this is turned off because this is how spammers hit servers.
so what you can do, is still check that DNS is working ok in each domain. Verify, check, and ping each server that they can talk to each other through the WAN.
If you are getting dropped packets, possibly when SMTP attempts to connect, or is connecting, it dies out and the message is not sent cause a backup on the que.
If the local DNS server is running slow, cant resolve the remote name quick enough, that would be aproblem.
