Assuming you have the client configured to run in Corporate Mode, then it is
the Exchange server that sends to new mail notification and the client does
not poll the Exchange server.

Subject: [exchangelist] Reducing Outlook 2000 polling

Hi Guys,

I need some expert help, but not sure if it is possible? We have 2 exchange
servers in our organisation at the same site and I want to reduce the email
traffic within the LAN and WAN. As opposed to email clients doing the
polling to check for mail can we can get the exchange servers to push the
mail to the client once it arrives? Or is there a way we can get outlook 200
clients to be disconnected and to check the server say every 30mins?

a frustrated admin!!!  :-/
