I have a user that periodically sends out an email to 1,200 user's externally. The file attachment is approx. 5 BM's, so this means 6 GB's of files in the GWIA.

He sent this out yesterday and it too about 9 hours to process through the GWIA. During that time, all mail crawls to a standstill going out of our GWIA.

Is this normal ? Is there some setting on the GWIA that'll help process these messages faster ?

Running GW7 SP4 on NetWare 6.5.
