In Microsoft Exchange 2000 Server, messages stack up in the Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) Local Delivery queue when the following conditions are true
During the forwarding process, when a message item is posted to a public folder, Exchange 2000 creates a message item from the original posted message item. However, because Exchange 2000 does not configure the property of the message item correctly, Exchange 2000 tries to expand the alternative recipient value two times. This causes messages to stack up in the SMTP Local Delivery queue.
