Hi ,

Is there anyway I can restrict the bandwidth used by Mx Exchange 5.5 to send mail.  When there is a lot of mail being received or sent the internet becomes virtually unusable for other purposes.

Thanks

Stephen

You can limit the size of messages moving through your Internet Mail Service, but you cannot limit the total bandwidth used by the Exchange server.

How would I limit the total bandwidth, are there other programs I can use to bolt onto exhange? surely I am not the only one?

This is a bit out of my realm, and may not be feasible depending upon your networking gear, but you may be able to give precendence on your router to port 80/143 over port 25 (QoS, etc...)  However, limiting your Exchange server's actual needs may give you undesired results such as lost emails, etc...

You would definately need some sort of QOS solution.  Windows 2000 comes with a QOS solution, but a hardware based solution will likely provide better performance:
