Top Office 365 Issues: Mailbox Latency Complaints

Posted by Pavan Reddy on Tue, Mar 07, 2017


User complaints about mailbox latencies are one of the most common issues that IT administrators face, and one of the most time-consuming to fix. Generally, an IT administrator will respond to complaints by asking if the issue is affecting everyone in the location.

They’ll also ask how frequently the issue is occurring, and request that the user check their network connectivity by opening Google. Then, the administrator will try to ping from their computer to get the network hop details to investigate further. They’ll involve the network team to find out any issues from the site. If no issues are found, they will reach out to Microsoft and open a case.

With GSX, IT administrators can save hours of time responding to email latency complaints. GSX automates the process, performing synthetic transactions from different locations on dedicated test user mailboxes to get the complete details on latencies. GSX performs several actions and lets admins be alerted immediately when set thresholds are exceeded. This allows admins to be proactively notified before the end user complains, and saves hours of time solving email latency issues.
