After moving e-mail(MDaemon) from an aging Windows NT 4.0 to a new Dell Windows 2003 Server performance degraded significantly for users accessing e-mail from remote subnets. I used network monitor to view the performance of the NIC while the problem was occurring and the usage was never more than 9%. Remote users would even get disconnected and where unable to ping the server. Users on the LAN were unaffected. As soon as I moved e-mail services back over to the NT Server everything was fine. What would cause this?

e-mail from remote subnets

i am not asking for details, but how is your network subnetted?
are you using VPN?
and are you using POP3 or another mail protocol?

im probably out of my depth here... heh.
