    Hi

    Customers are reporting time out errors when sending mail via my server, not all the time, but quite frequently. Personally, I've not experienced this, but does anyone else notice timeout issues...

    Thanks in advance...

    Go on, have a guess
    Whenever we've seen that it's usually down to the local ISP. If they don't use SMTP AUTH in their email client, they must remember to POP their mailbox before sending, and to send within 30 minutes of POPing. The other thing, of course, is if it's a problem, if you are in the UK, with the trans-atlantic link, if your servers are in the USA. Level3 has been having a lot of problems of late with their routers.
