You outgoing mail queue is probably clogged, we had this problem too. It turned 
out that exchange server was getting a "TON" of spam email for employees that 
no longer worked for the company. When the server would get these emails, it 
would try to respond back to the spammer, telling them that the persons email 
account is not vaild. Of course spammers never have a vaild return email 
address, so our outgoing email queue would get clogged up. What I did was 
create an account, and added email aliases to that account for each 
ex-employee, That way the exchange server would just accept the spam, and not 
respond back.

Hi all,

Incoming mail is processed by our Exchange 2000 server fairly fast. 
However, it can take up to 10 minutes to send an email to an outside
recipient...any ideas?
