Composed messages sit in outbox
Posted on 2004-04-03
Recently, we migrated from exchange 5.5 to exchange 2000. I have SP3 and Security Rollup installed for exchange. The server is Windows 2000 Server w/SP4
Windows 2000 Pro w/SP4
Outlook 2000 SP3
The problem is I have some users that compose new messages and when they click on send, the email will remain in the outbox until they click on a different folder.
The same users are experiencing a delay in receiving emails. If Outlook sits idle, the user will click on Inbox and then they will receive several emails, most of which were sent 10-15 minutes ago and as long as 1 hour ago.
The Send/Receive configuration has not been changed from the default values. We are not scheduling send/receive every X minutes.
