Problem sending pdf attachments in outlook RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    Overnight we are now suddenly experiencing the following problem:

    PDF email attachments that are bigger than +-300Kb does not want to sent, it gets stuck in the outbox. This seems to only be the case for users using Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2007 (user that have office 2003 does not seem to have a problem) .  It also seems to be only for the users that have automatic updates running. This is a very frustrating issue that we cannot seem to fix.

    We are running an Exchange 2003 server, but the emails are stored on the local machines in .pst files. The emails does not get stuck on Exchange, but in Outlook itself. While these emails are stuck in outlook no other emails are able to send and receiving new emails is also stopped. Further to this problem is that the exchange server is getting very slow do to the multiple send and receive requests that are constantly send to and from the server. This keeps happening will the mails is stuck in the outbox.

    We have not change anything on the exchange or on the desktop front. Can anbody offer assistance we are desperate.
