Attempts to send email using classic ASP often times out

Last Modified: 2015-03-11
One of our customers has reported sporadic problems when our classic ASP application tries to send an email via CDOSYS to Exchange 2010 (running on Server 2008r2).

Occasionally, the 'SEND' happens immediately but it can sometimes take 30 seconds or more or even timeout ASP (90 seconds).

I use a test_mailer_components.asp page (from Pensaworks) and this exhibits the same problem - all quite random.

However, when run from the webserver (where problems above are happening) a VBS script that uses the same set of directives returns immediately, - every time.

Any ideas?
