there are a lot of the samme messages for each email that it tries to handle and gives up on. Nothing has been updated and it has been running for a long time since last reboot (now I dont know exacly but im guessing months since last reboot).
I tried lowering the child count to 4, having retry count = 6 and I even set virusscanner = none
still getting the error

Are there no more messages then these 3 ?
I remember having something simular when there was a permission problem after an update. Or when you have the max retries at the same or a lower setting then the number of childs MS can spam, then the old age timer can grab valid e-mails.
