I am in a company of 50 or so users on a network. When an internal email is sent round to the group there are about 3 users who experience a 10-20 second delay as opposed to being instantaneously recieved by the rest. Is there a simple solution to fix this?

Thanks

Dave

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Click Tools > Rules and Alerts > New Rule. In Outlook 2003, choose Start from a blank rule. select Check messages after sending, and click Next.
Check defer delivery by a number of minutes in the next dialog box, click a number of in the lower pane, and clear the number of minutes to delay
Remember : The maximum is 120.
Click OK and then Next.
Check except if it is marked as importance in the list of exception options, click importance in the bottom pane, choose High in the drop-down menu that appears
Click OK, and then Next.
NOTE: Supply a name, review its settings and click Finish

Thanks

    Do you use an exchange server? If so what version of Exchange? Please provide more details. Thanks.

    The above solution suggests creating a NEW rule, but it seems to be a rule to ADD a delay (although it mentions clearing the minutes). In any case, IMO, if the problem were occurring when sending e-mails from a specific user's Outlook maybe checking if such a rule exists and if so deleting it could be an option. But if the problem occurs regardless of the originating user or account then other factors would need to be taken into consideration, such as the mail server, the network, etc

    Yes, the above solution for creating a new rule. I hope by creating a new rule, the q asker can solve his/her problem by this way. Though, it is not the exact solution for the above.
