  • Hello,

     

    Do you use POP3 connector to download the emails from ISP?

     

    If you are using Exchange receive connector, considering raising the TimeOut value by referring the following article:

  • You need to check who is causing issue to download mail from ISP. Do you see performance issue in SBS server when download it. Event log and perfmon counter will give you idea if you have any issue in system resources. what is WAN bandwidth you have to download mail from ISP. There are several factor which may cause this issue.

  • Let me put it like this theres no performance or internet issues have a 4mb Uncapped line, the e-mails download fine aslong as theres no emails larger that 5mb in any of the mailboxes on the isp side, if just one of 48 mailboxes receives a mail larger then 5mb the exchange bombs out, and no one is able to receive emails until that large email has been deleted. The event log gives the following error:

    Cannot connect to the SMTP server 'localhost' on port 25. The error code was 0x800ccc0f. Verify that the Microsoft Exchange Transport service is running and that the Exchange receive connectors are properly configured
