Email's cut off

#1
On Monday, I had a client (Outlook 2003 attached to SBS2003r2 exchange) who
sent a few emails that where cut off half way through. He received replies
from the recipients saying, you sent the email before you finished. I
rebooted the server and when it restarted, several users received NDR's from
emails that they had sent a week earlier. I assume that these NDR's were
fromemails stuck in the exchange STMP queue, which I failed to check before
rebooting, but I am not sure.

Anyone know why an email might get cut off? What would you recommend as
preventative maintenance at this point? Please advise.

Exchange shouldn't send the mail until the user hits send in outlook.
Verify the email in sent items with one received - may be a user issue? If
the email was indeed truncated check the anti-spam measures at both ends and
the size limits if it was a large email. You could also track the email in
the exchange administrator message tracking center.

As far as resending NDR's on boot, it is probably not related to this issue
but related to this greylisting issue:
