Bulk emails holding up the mail queue
Posted on 2013-10-31
We have an Exchange 2007 server that handles all our emails very nicely. However once a month we need to send out customer statements and at that point the exchange server is handed many hundreds of emails to process all at once. This generally gives us a long list in the outgoing mail queue and means that regular email is held up while the statements are cleared.
Is there someway to configure the exchange server (or the Outlook client from which the statements are set) to give priority to the regular mail? I don't want to statements to wait until "after hours" as it is important to get them out as soon as possible.
Thanks in advance.
