The Microsoft Mail Connector interchange (MSMI) will not process messages addressed to recipients if the recipient's address exceeds 256 characters. Typically, these messages would have been received by the Internet Mail Service and then forwarded to the MSMI. The message will remain in the MTA queue to the Microsoft Mail Connector. Additionally, the following errors are logged in the Application Event log:
The MSMI is unable to parse recipient names longer than 256 characters.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Exchange Server version 5.0. This problem has been corrected in the latest U.S. Service Pack for Microsoft Exchange Server version 5.0. For information on obtaining the Service Pack, query on the following word in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
To remove messages stuck in the MTA queue to the Microsoft Mail Connector, you must shut down the MSMI service and then delete the item from the MTA queue using the Exchange Administrator program.
