Smart Host Connector Delivery RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have problem with Smart Host Connector Delivery in Exchange 2016. Periodically I see too high queue. Also I see only two messages in queue per time have "Active" status. How i can increase active sessions from 2 to 20?

    Regards,

    Anton

  • Hi Anton,

    From your description, you say it "periodically" queue up. during this time does any back up Apps running?

    Any event errors/warnings in Application log?

    Have you checked any limits on the smart host or firewall?

    BR.

  • You need to adjust the message throttling policy to increase the number of connection a send connector can make with the domain.

    details are in this artical.

  • Thanks for your reply!

    I already read and implement this. But nothing changes, only 2 active sessions per time :(

  • Hi 

    If you use a smarthost, a third party SMTP server, it could limit the number of message per session to 2
    May be it's the case

  • Hi Anton,

    Have you checked the queued messages with the command: get-queue? And what’s the next hop domain of the message?

    Where you see the active sessions is 2?

    In Exchange server 2016 we can change the value of “SmtpMaxMessagesPerConnection” by using : set-sendconnector;

    And we can also change the value of “MaxOutboundConnections”, “MaxPerDomainOutboundConnections” via: set-transportserver.

    Best regards,

  • Hi Jason,

    next hop domain is smart host (Barracuda Spam Firewall).

    I see active sessions in queue viewer.

    MaxOutboundConnections and MaxPerDomainOutboundConnections value is unlimited.

    SmtpMaxMessagesPerConnection value is 200.

    Regards,Anton
