We have two Exchange 5.5 servers, both running Enterprise Edition,
connected via an X400 connector. The servers are in different sites and
are connected via a 512k WAN link. Server A is a NT Server 4 SP6a machine,
Server B is a Windows 2000 SP4 machine. We experienced very slow mail
traffic between the two MTA's. Line utilisation was ±50%, both machines
had low utilisation of hardware resources (HDD's, NIC's, CPU's, memory).
Mtacheck did not pick up any database corruption.

Normal flow of mail was only restored when we tried using a site connector
between the two servers as a final test. This led us to believe that the
problem might be X400 corruption. (Creating a second X400 connector did
not solve the problem)
