    Below is the receive log of the message from SMTP receiving connector: (It shows successful receive - queued mail)

    In the troubleshoot of " Message Tracking Log" , it mentions that it is failed:
    Timestamp EventId Source SourceConte MessageId Message Subject Sender receipent InternalMessageId ClientIP ClientHostname ServerIp TotalBytes RecipientCount Reference 12/1/2010 FAIL AGENT Agent OF36D539A6.65A9BF92-ON482577EC.00226F Re:Fw: Notebook & Netbook user1@lenovo.com arthurch 0 ServerE2K7 275190 1 (null)
    What is the meaning of Source=Agent and EventId = Fail ?

    Any suggestion to further trace why it is failed?

    Hi Joe,

    Server Exchange 2007 with SP2:

    Please first upgrade to SP3 - perhaps your issues is a bug and solved...

    In the troubleshoot of " Message Tracking Log" , it mentions that it is failed:


    Notebook & Netbookuser1@lenovo.com <mailto:user1@lenovo.com>arthurch0 
    ServerE2K7 2751901(null)

    There are a problem at the local transport. Which third party tools are
    installed? Please post get-transportagent from your server.

    Set the diagnostic logging to an higher level and check the event log for

    Best regards

    Dear Christian,

    After run get-transportagent, it shows:
    Identity Enabled Priority
    -------- ------- --------
    SMSMSERoutingAgent True 1
    SMSMSESMTPAgent True 2
    Connection Filtering Agent True 3
    Content Filter Agent True 4
    Sender Id Agent True 5
    Sender Filter Agent True 6
    Recipient Filter Agent True 7
    Protocol Analysis Agent True 8
    Transport Rule Agent True 9
    Journaling Agent True 10
    AD RMS Prelicensing Agent False 11

    Do you think it is blocked by 3rd pary application?
    For the diagnostic logging, what kind of logging should be turned on?

    I believe this is your Symantec AV engine - please disable them.

    And upgrade your environment - perhaps this bug will be solved like this:

    Extend the MSExchangeTransport logging...

    Dear Christian,
    How to disable Symantec AV enginee in the Exchagne transport ? Do it has any powershell command to do it ?

    First, I would like to confirm the following questions:

    1. Does the issue occur when delivering certain message or each message from the Lenovo user?

    2. Can the message be delivered to other user mailbox in your Exchange server?

    You may refer to the following article to disable the Transport Agent.

    Dear Novak,
    Thank you of the symantec information, I found that it is related to Symantec spam filtering issue. It has been fixed by reviewing your document.
