SQL DBmail taking ages to send emails

We send around 300 emails out at 4pm every day however there is something i suspect on my exchange server that limits the amount SQL is allowed to send to it within a certain period.

I have set SQL to keep retying until the emails send but thats just a work around.

Is there a setting i can change on my exchange server to allow SQL to send more emails at once? We are using exchange 2016 with sql 2012.

Thanks in advance for any help.

The mail could not be sent to the recipients because of the mail server failure. (Sending Mail using Account 3 (2016-09-21T16:57:11). Exception Message: Cannot send mails to mail server. (Service not available, closing transmission channel. The server response was: 4.4.2 Message submission rate for this client has exceeded the configured limit).
)

How is CPU usage on Exchange server. Total how many servers you have?

How about mail flow for normal users? Do you see any delay. I suggest you to create separate relay connector for application mail flow. Then test again.

Create new relay connector and test it. Or you can enable pipe line tracing to troubleshoot this further. How to do it:
