Delay in new mail notification

Post by Igor » Tue, 11 Feb 2003 23:12:52

HI All,
perhaps this is a FAQ but I wasn't able to find a solution.

I installed (as many of my collegues) OfficeXP on a WindowsXP Pro

Everything is updated to the last Service Pack/Hot Fix.

The matter is delay on new mail notification from our
Exchange 2000 Server.

Sometimes new mail notification (and header download) is
delayed also of half an hour.

It doesn't work also by clicking on "Send/Receive" button.

Now we use a workaround provided by
Knowledge Base Article.

It works but we are notified with a 1 minute delay than our Windows2000
collegues workstation.

I'm sure this isn't a new problem.

Thanks in advance,
