The first thing to do in this situation is to check the mail logs and see if there might be any reason why the mail isn't moving. Without that piece of information, one can't diagnose the problem.

Talking thks

thks again

solved the problem, there was spammin on mail server we received 30000 mails with in 1 min. that caused active queue saturate and incoming queue started expanding.

so solution was simple i simply deleted active queue took its backup on the system. this all owed pending mails to flow in. u can use software like mailq to check out queue size.
