Exchange 2016 - Trying to figure out an email delay (250 2.0.0 Resetting) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Customer using GoldMine 2017 and an on-premises Exchange 2016 server for relay. For those that don't know GoldMine is pretty much a POP/SMTP client. Getting a few delays when sending out emails, wondering if there is anything I can do on the Exchange side to fix up the 250 2.0.0 Resetting. Seems that GoldMine tries once, gets hung up, and then tries again and it goes out. When it tries the second time, the email goes out in <0.2 seconds. Even with the reset all this happens in <2 seconds......so it is not a major delay, but enough that users are starting to notice it. Wondering if there is an Exchange setting I might be able to change to clean that up. Figure it might be something with MaxAcknowledgementDelay. I have that set to 00:00:00 right now.

    This particular log snip is from an internal user sending to 3 other internal users (same domain). Same thing happens when sending to users outside of the domain.

  • Hello,

    Thanks for contacting our forum.

    It seems that sometimes your application sends QUIT command before receiving reply for the "the final dot" of the message (250 for OK). Application is resetting the SMTP session maybe we need contact application vendor.

    Please refer to:  Smtp sending via Exchange some mails do not complete but still send - why?

    Please note: Since the website is not hosted by Microsoft, the link may change without notice. Microsoft does not guarantee the accuracy of this information. And the changes made in the above blog is not supported officially by Microsoft.

    What’s the version of your Exchange server? Does restart the transport service works? It’s recommended to update to the latest version and check the results if it’s not.

    And if this issue only affect specific sender or specific sender IP.

    Hope it helps.


    Best Regards,
    Jason Chao
