Exchange 2010 tarpit - can't disable

snowdog_2112 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I've run the set-receiveconnector command and a get-recieveconnector it shows the tarpitinterval of 00:00:00.

Yet, my smtp logs show the connector is tarpitting connections.  Every incoming connection from my mail scrubbing service is getting tarpitted, from 0.5 seconds to 2.5 seconds (the longest I've seen in the logs)

I have 2 questions:
1. How do I *really* disable tarpitting?

2. I have read that the connector will tarpit a connection only on a "user not found" error, but I'm getting *every* connection tarpitted, why?
