Exchange Servers Admin >> schedule mail

Hi,

I have installed an exchange 2000 server for a friend of mine who has an
ISDN Router. Mail is sent and recieved very wel, but only when he sent a
message.

Where can I define that the server has to get its mail every 2 hours??

I used Exchange 2000 SP3 and he has ant SMTP account with his ISP. and when
connection is made by the ISDN router then the incoming mail is received.
But sometimes it takes to long because the don't send much mail they recieve
more.

I can make an batch file with a ping command, but isnt there a better/nicer
way??

Where can I define to keep message togetter say for 60 minutes and then make
an connection (so the isdn isn't that much up)

Servers don't "get" mail. SMTP mail is sent to them.

You can convince the ISP to call his ISDN number! Good luck with THAT!

Or you can visit http://www.swinc.com/resource/exch_dq.htm and get a
copy of "dequeue". Schedule it to run every couple of hours. Of create
a batch job to drop a text file (properly formatted) into the "Pickup"
directory so there's something to send when the SMTP Connector runs.

Create a SMTP Connector and create the schedule you want on the
"Delivery Options" tab.
