Hi All,

What should I do when the send and receive email externally took more than 15 minutes to my inbox ?

I have sent test email from Gmail to myself but so far not in my inbox yet ?

What I did recently was to remove the unused old X400 entry as well as the CC: Mail attributes using ADSI edit. as per this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2188432

Internally its working fine but not externally ?

1st of all if your mail flow to external is like Exchange > Mail Gateway > Internet

Then,

Send Mail:

1. Send to several external account such yahoo.com,gmail, hotmail and etc
2. Verify time when an email reach from Exchange at Mail Gateway and pass to internet
3. Verify the receive date at those external acount

Compare no.2 and no 3.

Receive Mail:

1.  Send an email to internal mail from several external account.
2. Verify time reach at Mail Gateway
3. Verify time reach at Exchange

Compare the time for No.1 and No.2

X400 is for internal mail flow not External

Yes there is a mailhost / smarthost running Solaris as the email gateway.
