  • Exchange 2003 is taking too long to send E-mails to inbox

    I am currently having Win 2003 server as my domain controller and Exchange 2003 server configured on another Windows 2003 server SP1.

    Recently I the performance of Exchange has slowed down a lot. It is taking too long by Exchange to deliver E mails to inbox. Some times the mails are not delivered even after a day.

    Pls Help

    What changed?
    Anything in event logs or message headers?
    Have you turned on tracking?

      "Windows 2003 server SP1" Really? Any reason your server is five years out of date?

      I would suggest that you start by bringing everything up to date with all of the latest service packs and updates. Run Microsoft Update against the systems to cover everything.

      The primary reason for performance issues (After user perception being wrong of course) is AV or Anti-spam software, particularly anything made by Symantec.

        You'll need to give us more details. Are these emails that are being sent from one internal recipient to another? Are these external emails being sent to internal recipients? etc., etc.
