Exchange 2016 server slow to send mail (currently internal only) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    On a client's server we currently have an Exchange 2016 set up in a clients office. The issue is that it's very slow to send mail, it took one hour to send mail yesterday.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi,

    Thanks for contacting our forum. How about receiving emails?

    Does this issue affect all of the users or specific users(or on specific DB )?

    Were the messages stuck in Outbox or in the transport queues? You can check with the command get-queue.

    Have you checked the Event log? Were there any back pressure related events, such as 15004, 15005, etc.

    And please confirm that is it slow on both OWA and Outlook.

    Thanks for your effort.


    Regards,

  • Hi,

    Issue affects all users, at the moment the send connect is set up for just sending internal mail. Messages from the OWA would stay in drafts for awhile before they'd just all send at one time, same sort of thing with outlook but it stays in the sent folder for awhile before sending at what I assume is the same time as the OWA.

    The get-queue command shows that there's one message in the smarthost but this doesn't increase when I send more mails so I'm not sure if that's possibly an issue.

    Nothing seems to be picking up in Event Viewer. 

    One more thing, it seems there's got to be something delaying the message cause yesterday from 2:30 pm to sometime before 4:00 pm the mails were sending instantly.

    Hope this helps

  • Hi,

    Thanks for your response. Do you have any backup software or any other software deployed?

    Do you mean the message mails are sending instantly now? Just in the time period you mentioned above the messages were delayed.

    If this issue still exist, it’s recommended to enable the intraOrg connector and mailbox delivery connector log to check the detailed information as below:

    Use this procedure to enable or disable protocol logging on the implicit and invisible intra-organization Send connector that exists in the Transport service, the Front End Transport service, and the Mailbox Transport Submission service on Mailbox servers.

    Set-TransportService Mailbox01 -IntraOrgConnectorProtocolLoggingLevel Verbose

    Use this procedure to enable or disable protocol logging on the implicit and invisible mailbox delivery Receive connector that exists in the Mailbox Transport Delivery service.

    Set-MailboxTransportService Mailbox01 -MailboxDeliveryConnectorProtocolLoggingLevel Verbose
    
    

    Check in the following path:

    
    
    %ExchangeInstallPath%TransportRoles\Logs\Mailbox\ProtocolLog\SmtpSend\Submission
    %ExchangeInstallPath%TransportRoles\Logs\Mailbox\ProtocolLog\SmtpReceive\Delivery

    Hope it helps.

  • Hi,

    The mails are still slow, they were only instant in the times I listed

    The server only has Exchange 2016 installed

    Tried setting up the logging using the commands but the logs don't appear to have been created.

    Thanks
