Exchange 2010 Message Throttling

Monday, October 29th, 2012

Ive been spending some time working on Message Filtering for Exchange 2010. We have some clients setup who have an external spam filter that handles all the email – so the exchange server only sees traffix from 1 SMTP source. Which is fine unless the Exhcnage system gets overloaded with mail and starts to throttle messages based on SourceIP – of which there is only 1  being the mail filter ! So have a look at the various options you can play with using Exchange Console and the following command -
Get-ReceiveConnector | Set-ReceiveConnector (-MaxInboundConnection -MaxInboundConnectionPercentagePersource -MessageRateSource)
Get-ThrottlingPolicy | Set-ThrottlingPolicy
and consider turning OFF the Exchange Anti Spam features – since its being handled elsewhere. Look at increasing limits (or setting to unlimited or $NULL depending on the chooices for the option).
