We have a daily custom timer job that emails a newsletter. Recently newsletters have not been sent and the timer job status has been stuck on "initialized 0%"
I have cleared the cache as described in this article - http://blogs.msdn.com/b/josrod/archive/2007/12/12/clear-the-sharepoint-configuration-cache-for-timer-job-and-psconfig-errors.aspx
However when the job next runs it goes back to "initialized 0%"
The logs are showing messages such as:
The operation has timed out. at System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient.Send(MailMessage message)
I have confirmed that we are using the correct smtp settings for the outbound smtp server and that subscriber email addresses are being pulled through in the code correctly.
What is strange is that the newsletter is still being received by one recipient, who is using an email address with our company domain.
Is there anything else I can check in SharePoint (2007) or is this an exchange / SMTP issue?
Thanks very much
