We recently upgraded to JIRA 5.0 from 4.1. After doing this we noticed that when someone creates/updates an issue, JIRA sends out the notification emails one at a time in intervals of about 15 seconds. We did nothing different when setting up 5.0 with mail handlers and the SMTP mail server settings. We did migrate at this time to a new exchange server. We have tried many things to JIRA to send out the emails in bulk but nothing is working. Any help would be appreciated.
No, we can confirm that this issue has nothing to do with Exchange. We can see the emails being generated from JIRA in real time coming into exchange in approx. 15 second intervals which exchange is handling and sending out immediatly as it should. We need JIRA to be sending the notifications in bulk to exchange which is not happening.
I see in this in the logs:

Could this be causing a problem?

I did some more digging and found this error:
2012-07-19 12:34:15,575 ERROR [scheduler_Worker-2] [atlassian.core.task.AbstractErrorQueuedTaskQueue] handleException com.atlassian.mail.MailException: javax.mail.AuthenticationFailedException
User -Dmail.debug to see what's happening. IMHO, because you have AuthenticationFailedException, it is something linked to your new exchange server configuration.
Could it be that the default throttling is now in place on Exchange, and wasn't before? I'd recommend using a staging JIRA instance to see whether JIRA is trying to send the emails at long intervals, or whether it is trying and getting lots of 'not ready' responses from Exchange.
This message is also repeating when i look at the catalina logs:
2012-05-22 16:09:42,806 IssueIndexer:thread-5 WARN administrator 951x198x1 xdausq 192.168.201.136 /secure/admin/XmlRestore.jspa [atlassian.jira.web.FieldVisibilityManagerImpl] Issue with id '141210' and key 'CENSUS-6142' has a null project, returning true for isFieldHidden check.
When we upgraded we did switch in new hardware. People have metioned message throttling but we have never heard about that so what are some recommendations for setting those policies. Our exchange only accepts the email we give it and JIRA is the one making the email and using exchange as the sender.
JIRA doesn't track outbound notifications so no. It would result in millions of notification entries, JIRA dropping 'inbound' receipt records recently, it was a common cause of complaint taking up GB in big instances.
JEMH has some support for recording outbound notifications, but is meant for targetted projects, to avoid the problems of space above.
In the past, Portfolio for Jira required a high degree of detail–foresight that was unrealistic for many businesses to have–in order to produce a reliable long-term roadmap. We're tur...
