Exchange Server - Email Trapped in Transport Queues

Another issue affecting onPrem Exchange servers (bug affect 2016 & 2019) has been made public today where emails are trapped in the transport queues, this is related to a date check failure with the change of the new year. Microsoft has confirmed this is not a security related issue.

Microsoft is working on a patch and has released a workaround posted here.
