OWA 2007 emails stuck in Drafts for about 2 minutes before sending emails.
I am running Exchange 2007.

When a user logs into OWA and creates a new message and than sends the message it gets stuck in the Drafts folder.  After about 1 - 3 minutes the email or emails send successful.  This doesn't happen all the time, but I noticed a pattern that it happens after every 4 or 5th email sent.

Hi,

I have faced the same problem earlier and for us restarting the Microsoft Exchange Mail Submission Service on Mailbox role server has done the job. That resolved the issue for us.

Also, make sure you have enough free space on the drive that you installed Exchange on.

Hope it helps,

DNS Server was pointing to an old AD server.  That's the reason for the slowness.
