Where are you seeing it being held up at, the client, outbound queue,
other end?  If your a typical business remember that first thing in the
morning is the busiest time for your Exchange servers, thats when
everyone is logging in and opening thier mailbox for the first time of
the day.  Large mailboxes take a few seconds to open and put a heavy
(temporary) load on your servers, you may simply be seeing user
What type of connection do you have for outbound traffic?  Older
connections like ISDN will disconnect during off-hours and do take a
minute or so to reconnect in the morning.  It's possible that your
seeing an issue with your internet connection dropping during off-hours.
Just some thoughts,  Maybe describe your setup a little for us (servers,
number of users, connection, etc...) and we might come up with some
better answers.

Subject: [ExchangeList] First Email of the morning

When I send the first email every morning it take is like 10 seconds
before it is sent, all of the rest of the emails I send through out the
day send right out but the first one just sits there for 10 -15 seconds
and then is sent.  Do not see any events on the Exchange server.  I have
Exchange 2003 non Enterprise SP2 on windows 2003 Domain Controller.  Yep
I know should not be on a domain controller but it was like that before
I got here.  I will be putting in a new Server for the Exchange and
migrate to it.


Thanks Bruce Rose
