E-mail Latency

pts.
Tags:
Hey Everyone, Here's my problem. I'm running Exchange 5.5 on a W2K machine. Sometimes, with no particular user, it will take 1 hour to 1 day for an email to be received. The emails are sent to local recipients not users outside of our organization. The server has all of its patches, separate MAPI and file level virus scanners, dual NICs, RAID 5. Does anyone have any idea on what could be causing that? I'm sure that I can't be the only one to experience this but it feels like it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks PScott

Hello,

Since your saying this delay occurrs across the network affecting all users at any given time and not just one single user, have you considered your Anti Virus software as a culprit? Anti Virus software can play nasty tricks with email which may be resulting in the latency. Try turning it off and running a series of tests and see how things react.

Good Luck!
