Rate Limited on Exchange 2007 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is there a way that I can rate limit email accounts?  We have had a few email accounts in the past get key logged, and they start sending out 10,000-100,000 email an hour.  I usually catch it fairly quick.  But is there a way I can setup somthing to only allow says 50 emails every 30 minutes to get out, anything over that is rate limited?

    Thanks,

  • We had to go with a 3rd party MTA product called "PowerMTA" to get those results.  There is a "MaxRateLimit" on receive connectors which restrict the messages send out by a perticular client per minute.  I don't know if that would get you the results you want though.

  • Hi,

    You may use cmdlet like MaxOutboundConnections, MaxPerDomainOutboundConnections, PickupDirectoryMaxMessagesPerMinute

    You may have to customize the commands. You may refer this page to code by yourself http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124238.aspx
