WHO is sending large files

By robert ·
We are running Exchange 5.0, and have occasional periods where the clients experience very slow performance, using Outlook 97. I would like to know if there is a way to determine if a user is sending out large files to the internet. I suspect this may cause our slow performance.

You can use Excel to open up your tracking.log files. Column I contains the size limit field.

If a large message, or a message with a large attachment, is in the _process_ of being sent, you can open the Exchange Administrator, double-click on the Internet Mail Service (Connections), select the Queues tab, and choose Outbound -- awaiting delivery in the ComboBox. Highlight each message one at a time and click the Details button. The resulting screen will tell you the sender, the destination and the size, among other things.

You can also use Performance monitor (remotely, if you like) to constantly monitor the outbound traffic through the MSExchangeIMC.

If your Exchange server is also a domain controller, it may be performing other tasks such as domain sychronization or handling net logon requests. This might be slowing things down as well.

Now that you know how to monitor the traffic using the above methods and if Outlook 97 is still slow.

There is your answer Outlook 97 has always been slow (even according to microsoft). Microsoft released an article to customize outlook 97 to improve performance, but it doesn't help much.

So they later released Outlook 98 with its enhance features with even better performance. However the problem was never completely corrected.

With the release of Outlook 2000, there is a huge improvement in performance, it is more of what one might expect. I suggest you give it a test run, it was released with the Nov 99 issue of Microsoft TechNet.
