View Incoming Delivery Queue

The Incoming Delivery Queue stores emails that are not being accepted by the destination server (your mail server administrator should be able to check why these emails are not being accepted - see ).

The system attempts to re-deliver queued messages automatically for 14 days. If, after 14 days, a message still cannot be delivered to the recipient, the system will try to bounce it to the sender. If it cannot be bounced, the message is placed in a frozen state - it cannot be delivered to the recipient or bounced back to the server.

If required, you can manually force delivery of a queued message after resolving the destination mail server issues.
