Rate Limit Our Microsoft Exchange Mail Server Outbound Email Traffic

I posted another EE question about doing this using a Sonicwall, but I want to explore my options from doing it on the server as well.  Basically we had an employee send out an email to 1000 recipients with a 2 megabyte file attached.  This brought our T-1 to a crawl.

What options do I have for rate limiting the exchange server?  Is it possible to make exchange send out email at a maximum specified speed?  

Thanks for the help!

Hi CBIA,

I don't believe you can limit via bandwidth, but you can set other limits like maximum message size, maximum number of recipients, or oversize message.

You can setup the Internet Connector to send emails over a set size to only be sent outside business hours.

Good Luck,

Chris
