MailEnable: Message delivery has been delayed.

Message is waiting at for delivery to

The message will be retried for another 30 hours.

Reason: Mail server for could not be contacted at this time. MailEnable will keep trying to deliver this message and will notify you of any progress.

The SMTP Delivery options control this. In the administration program, expand the Servers->localhost->Connectors and Services branch, right click on the SMTP icon and select Properties from the popup menu. Click the Delivery tab and there are options for the delay notifications. By default, only one delay notification is sent.

Great instructions on showing where the option is. The default "only send 1 delay notification" doesn't work. It's completely ignored.

I'm going to turn it off, but it's worth noting that the option isn't working on v9.75.
