My office runs 2 servers, one is for active directory /SQL server management plus serves as the domain controller, the other is strictly for exchange 2007. We have a VOIP system that accepts DATA and Voice thru the same box and for 2 years we ran both feeds thru that box. A few weeks ago though, we decided to separate the 2 feeds so we have one router just for data and the VOIP box is for voice only. Everything went fine, we were on the phone with tech support for the VOIP box and they walked us thru. All settings stayed the same so no client machines needed to be pointed towards a new router or anything.

But ever since then, our clients have been having trouble with outlook/exchange. Our email is run thru POP3 accounts offsite, the only purpose exchange serves for us is for onsite email backup. What happens is outlook will randomly freeze every 2-3 minutes, they client doesn't even have to do anything for it to freeze, it will just happen.

My solution was to disconnect the client from exchange being that it is not too much of a critical component right now, but in the long run this solution will not work. I'm beginning to think it is the client's DNS settings? I've flushed it on the client's machines as well as the server and nothing changed. Any solutions?

Hello Uraiser

What is the timeout set as. If you running your email through your POP3 account it might be that every client is receiving there email at the same time clogging the servers and the DATA router and hence random freezing. Mine is set to receive email every 30 mins. You can find this in the TOOLS menu>>Options>>Mail Setup>>Send and Receive Option

Hope this helps

I think everyone is set to 5 minutes. That would explain the freezing. Ill check it out tomorrow at the office and update the thread with what i find.
