Mails sent to mail enabled public folder take long time to be visible i Outlook

Hi

I don't know if its relevant information, but we have just migrated our 2003 Exchange hosting setup to 2007
Mails sent to Public folders takes log time to reach Outlook.

This folder where we clearly can see the delay is set up to forward the mail to a group of people.
If I sends a mail to this public folder, I can instantly see all the logs in Message Tracking of the receiving Exchange, and in the Inbox, but when going to the Public folder the mail isn't there.
After some time of waiting, from 2 minute to almost an hour, the mail is visible i Outlook, and the time stamp is from when the mail actually was sent/received.

We have 2 Frontend servers, 2 backend servers set up in cluster and 2 public folder servers, where replication is set to the lowest possible 1 or 5 minutes, if I remeber correct, all running Windows 2008 R2 with Exchange 2007

Can anyone come with any suggestens as to why mails to public folder are so slow to arrive? - Are there other replication settings I might have missed perhaps?

Regards Lars Mortensen

> Can you check the mails @ the OWA -2007
That should be real fast, correct?

> Do you see this issue on "Outlook Online Mode"?

> By any chance, can you "turn off" the following
On the Tools --> account Setings --> More settings
Advanced (second tab)
"Cached Exchange Mode Settings"
--> Download Public Folder Favorites

Thanks for the answer.

The mail is slow to arrive @ webmail too, so it must be something serverish like replication or something.

I'm running in Online mode.

I can't change that setting, properly because i'm running in Online mode.

Okies...
So next step is to double-check if the *slowness* along with other task

--> can you send mails to one normal mail-enabled folder and second
"This folder where we clearly can see the delay is set up to forward the mail to a group of people"

--> how did you enabled the forward-the-mail to the DL

Hi

I'm not sure what you mean by "normal mail-enabled folder", but if you mean another folder, then I have tested by creating a new folder, mail enabled this folder, and it's the same with this folder.

The forward is created by going to properties of the mail enabled folder (In EMC), going to mail flow and set it to forward to an distribution group, and leaving a message in both mailboxes.

I just tested some more, I tried to disable the forward, no joy.
I then removed one of the servers from the Replication tab, and the mail came right through, added the second one, and removed the first, and, after a restart of Outlook so it knew it had moved server, the mail still came right through.
I added both servers to the replication again, and closed and opend Outlook the "Came right through" mail were missing, but after some time the mails poped up again, so it got to be something with replication of the two PF serveres.
