Email In Deferral state RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have 2 NLB CAS/HT Servers and 2 DAG Mailbox servers, also I use Forefront OnLine Protecction for Exchange (FOPE) and all emails are checked and cleaned before entering to my Exchange oganization. Everything is working fine but when I send a email over 1MB of size from outside the organization (from Internet to Exchange organization), the email will arrive to exchange organization within 4 or 5 hours. It's taking a lot of time....

    Traffic within the exchange organization is working fine and fast.

    When I going to search the email traffic in FOPE, the email is "Passed Filtering", that is ok but in details the email has the next message log:

    Delivery Result:                                 
    In Deferral: conversation with MY_PUBLIC_IP_ADDRESS timed out while sending message body (4 attempts)

    Any idea how to fix this issue...

  • Hi,

    check the transport log of your HT servers there should be something in it that gives you more information.
