Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 (or later) uses client throttling policies to manage the performance of your Exchange organization. Exchange Server tracks the resources that each user consumes and enforces connection bandwidth limits, as necessary.
The Mail Security service account has a default Client Access Server (CAS) throttling policy. However, the bandwidth that is allocated to the default policy parameters is not sufficient in the case of multithreaded manual scanning. You may see degradation in the performance of a manual scan if you use the default throttling policy. Therefore, you must create a custom throttling policy and assign it to the Mail Security service account user.
To create and assign a custom throttling policy to the Mail Security service account user
Click Start > Programs > Microsoft Exchange Server server version > Exchange Management Shell.
Type the following command to create the throttling policy and then press Enter:
New-ThrottlingPolicy -Name <PolicyName> -EWSPercentTimeInAD $null -EWSPercentTimeInMailboxRPC $null -EWSMaxConcurrency $null -EWSMaxSubscriptions $null -EWSPercentTimeInCAS $null
Type the following command to assign the throttling policy to the Mail Security service account user and then press Enter:
Set-ThrottlingPolicyAssociation -Identity Service Account User Name -ThrottlingPolicy Throttling Policy Name
