Exchange Client

By aprasad ·

First a little history we have an Exchange server 5.5 SP2 running on W2k box, most of our offices are connected via fiber some of our smaller office go through the isp to gain access to Exchange. Any office connected internally with fiber have no problems with Outlook connectivity of use.
All offices not internally connected have issues with Outlook 97 initial connection to Exchange is fine but when sending e-mail internally or externally is very slow.

We've tried host files on the client computers, we are using WINS. These offices are going through a proxy server dual NIC
Windows NT4.0 SP6a, Proxy 2.0

Have you encountered this problem at all, Please help.

Exchange Client

I'm not sure if this will help or not but if not please feel free to drop me an email to discuss further:

You say that the offices not internally connected but going through an ISP?

What connection are you getting to the ISP?
Are you talking ADSL, ISDN or Dial-up?
If you are talking either ISDN or Dial-up the connection speed is painfully slow.

Also, Is the exchange server a full Domain Secuirty participant? If so what about the clients? If not it will be slow as the client will verify the security credentials every time someone tries to do something.

Another thing to check is the protocols running on the server, You should disable any protocols that are not in use as addtional protocols will slow the server down.

Ihope that this answer is of some help to you.
