We have SBS 2008 running Exchange 2007.
Our exchange account retrieves email via the SBS POP connector. Each account is linked to a separate POP email account. The POP connector downloads email every 15 minutes.
We have recently been adding more user accounts to the exchange server and have recently been experiencing connection issues.
Users outlook shows "Trying to connect" for a while but then eventually the connection is established.
Could it be that when downloading the email via the POP connector, it somehow throttles the connection to the server?
Although when a user's outlook is trying to connect, there does not seem to be any issue with the connection on a mobile device (iPad, iPhone, etc...) also not all users experience the connection issues at the same time.
I have found that when a user is having this problem being unable to connect via outlook I can run iisreset on the server and it resolves the connection issue immediately.
I don't seem to find anything in the event logs showing any issues in this regard.
Has anyone else experienced this?
Any ideas how to resolve?
