MS Exchange - modifying the delay notification settings


Is there a way in MS Exchange to modify the Delay Notification settings - for example to allow for network delays, I would like to set a delay period to a specified time.

You can view or change the retry interval, delay notification, and expiration time-out by completing the following steps:

1. Start System Manager. If administrative groups are enabled, expand the administrative group in which the server you want to use is located.

2. In the console tree, navigate to the Protocols container. Expand Servers, expand the server you want to work with, and then expand Protocols.

3.  In the console tree, expand SMTP. Right-click the virtual server that you want to work with, and then select Properties. The default SMTP virtual server controls message delivery for the default domain.

4.Click the Delivery tab, as shown in Figure 13-6, and then use the following options to set the retry values:
•    First Retry Interval (Minutes) Sets the amount of time to wait after the first delivery attempt. The default is 15 minutes.
•    Second Retry Interval (Minutes) Sets the amount of time to wait after the second delivery attempt. The default is 30 minutes after the first retry interval.
•    Third Retry Interval (Minutes) Sets the amount of time to wait after the third delivery attempt. The default is 60 minutes after the second retry interval.
•    Subsequent Retry Interval (Minutes) Sets the amount of time to wait after the fourth and subsequent delivery attempts. The default is 240 minutes.

5.Set the Outbound delay notification and expiration time-out values using the Delay Notification and Expiration Timeout fields on the Outbound panel. You can set these values in minutes, hours, or days.

6.Set the Local delay notification and expiration time-out values using the Delay Notification and Expiration Timeout fields on the Local panel. You can set these values in minutes, hours, or days.

7.Click OK.
