Hi all,

I have an issue with my Exchange 2000.  When I send a message to outside
domain there is a lag...approximately 5-30 minutes before the recipients
receives it.  For example...we monitor our network and page our cell
phones with text msgs when a branch server goes receiving a
message 30 minutes after the outage is not acceptable.  I have tracked the
message and this is what I get:

06/10/2004 8:46AM SMTP Store Driver: Message Submitted from Store
06/10/2004 8:46AM SMTP: Message Submitted to Advanced Queuing
06/10/2004 8:46AM SMTP: Started Message Submission to Advanced Queue
06/10/2004 8:46AM SMTP: Message Submitted to Categorizer
06/10/2004 9:08AM SMTP: Started Outbound Transfer of Message
06/10/2004 9:09AM SMTP: Message Transferred to XXX through SMTP

As you can see it took 23 minutes to send the message.

Any ideas what could be causing this...the only thing that has changed
recently is a Windows 2000 SP4 install and critical updates.
