Exchange 2010 message delivery time
Posted on 2013-05-09
I just received an email from my manager, who received an email from her manager about the following situation...I don't really have any answer here and just figured I'd ask for ideas at least to get direction as to where to look further.
-External Entity Person-A Emailed Person-B and CC'd Person-C. (person B & person C being local exchange 2010 mailboxes - possibly on different DB's0
-Person-B received the email at 2:11 PM and decided to forward the message to Person-C at 2:18 PM.
-At 2:41 the original the original message from External Entity Person-A arrived in the inbox of Person-C
Person-C noted the time difference of approximately 30 minutes between the time that Person-B received the message and the same message arrived in her inbox.
-->times all based out Outlook timestamps in the messages.
Can anyone give me any kind of explanation as to why this would be happening? It's exchange 2010 in a DAG, F5 load balancers in front, possible different CAS servers but all active databases are sitting on a single DB. I'd really like to avoid having to do message tracking and all sorts of nonsense over this, but I know that now everyone is going to be worried that their emails are showing up 30 minutes late.
Thanks in advance.
