set limit on number of retry on exchange server

is there any way we can set limit on the number of time exchange server retry to send an email? I have some users send email to a group of distribution list and some got but other didn't so exchange keep trying and this is causing the internet connection to be very slow. How can we set limit in exchange 2003 on the number of retry?

this maybe?

How to change the number of times that Exchange will retry synchronization
You can set the number of times that Exchange will retry synchronization if synchronization is not successful. To do this, change the following registry entry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\MSExchangeIs\<name of server>\<private store GUID>\Rules Sync Retry Limit
This registry entry is a DWORD value. The minimum value that you can use is 0. The maximum value that you can use is 250. By default, this registry entry is set to 24.

If the above dont help try this one too, if it applies to your setup that is.

Managing Messaging Delivery for SMTP and the Exchange Server Organization
SMTP delivery options determine how mail is delivered once a connection has been established and the receiving computer has acknowledged that it's ready to receive the data transfer. This section shows you how to use the configuration options that determine how message delivery and transfer occurs.

You can set the following options to control message delivery:

• Outbound retry intervals
 
• Outbound and local delay notification
 
• Outbound and local expiration time-out values
 
• Message hop count
 
• Domain name options
 
• Reverse DNS lookups
 
• External DNS server lists
