  • hi... as suggested by others here... it depends on many things...

    1. which is kind of above AAL : your free network bandwidth

    2. Server Load

    3. Hardware/ specially the IOs for your HDD

    4. Firewall policies

    5. your upload speed to your local ISP.

    6. DNS resolutions/ Upstream DNS and ISP

    7. and many more ..:)

    My experience based on SME type of environment it should not take more then few seconds .. i do a benchmarking of around 5-7 seconds for mail within country and around 10-15 seconds for mail leaving my country.this is a normal mail with txt and not attachment.

    attachment mail takes time based on above reasons.


    MARK AS USEFUL/ANSWER IF IT DID

  • It depends on various things, server load, network bandwidth etc... It doesn't take more than few seconds to minutes unless there are some issue with server or network path in between...

    You can always enable the deliver and/or read receipt to ensure that message has delivered but if message is sent outside of organization then it depends if such receipts are enabled  at organization level or not....

  • Hi ,

    Please review the headers of the message there you can able to find the time stamp for each and every hop and also you can able to find out the time taken between the hops.

    What is the normal time it takes the message from the sender to the consignee ?

    That depends on no of hops it should have to cross to reach the destination.

    In case if there is delay you should have to look on that particular hop .

    Please refer the below mentioned links to find the message latency :

  • Hi,

    please check queue viewer in Exchange management console.Here you can see if message are stuck/delayed or not.In Exchange 2013 there are not limits for how many messages can be sent pr minute,but limits are as mentioned earlier (bandwidth,network and so on).

    In Exchange online there is a limit of 30 messages pr minute.
