JIRA email delays

Hi, we continually have 500 or 1000 emails in our JIRA mail queue on busy days. It takes 30 or 60 minutes for some users to receive emails. JIRA seems to process emails very slowly and serially. Is there anything that can be done to speed up the queue? Thanks.

Hi Rich, the problem turned out to be throttling that's in place on our Exchange server. I switched to a different SMTP server in our Linux datacenter environment, and emails flow instantly now.

Was it happened after JIRA upgrade ?

Can you check the logs in the file <jira_home>/log/atlassian-jira.log, <JIRA_HOME>/log/atlassian-jira-outgoing-mail.log for more information.

Refer this KB for troubleshooting.

Hope this helps.

I'm curious if you ever got a decent answer to this. Related issues seem to be:

I'm seeing similar behavior, and so far my hacky solution has been to automate the pressing of the mail queue flush button once a minute. But next I'm looking at the quartz scheduler, as the third URL suggests.
