A mobile user is saying it is taking up to 10 minutes to send an email on their laptop using Outlook Web Access
in SBS 2011. I have asked about the wireless signal etc and he tells me that it is pretty good and also that he gets 12MB
from his provider. Laptop has Windows 7 Professional on it and I think they are using IE11. I am going to get them
to try it in lite mode first. Where else Can i then check.

Thanks

You need to check who is the ISP provider, the internet he is using? Also, check the DNS settings, where the mail is being routed when he is sending from his laptop.

Think it may be BT, but will double check. Where and what DNS settings should I check? Am I correct in thinking that
remote users use the same email server as users that are in the office. In that case Would all the ISP be providing
is just access to the internet?

How many remote users is this affecting? Is it just one remote user?

There are two in total, but it only seems to be affecting one. I haven't heard anything from the other one so I assume it
isn't.

Will ask he is using a dongle, but he said It was as router as I asked him how close he was to it.

Ok. Get him to reboot the router and see does this improve the issue and also ask him to do a speed test. He can use the link below.

Ok, will do. Appreciate it is a different setup but he says his Gmail is virtually instant.

Hey Floyd,

Does this happen from any other location for this user?

See if it happens when that use is local to that server.

If it is the same wherever they are. Maybe try moving that user to a new database in Exchange.
