Hi, I have Exchange 5.5 on Win NT 4 PDC. For the past couple of days the users are complaining of slow response through outlook express. The same is the case with telnet too. It takes some time to get connected. I checked there is enough space on the drives. One more thing i noticed is that in the mailbox resources there are hardly any mails in individual's mailboxes but still the priv.edb is of in GB's. I have no network speed issues. May i know what could be causing the slowness and size of priv.edb. Regards, Sudhir Kaushal Network Engineer ( Hosted Team ) eGain Communications Pvt. Ltd.
