Assume that you use Microsoft BizTalk Server 2013 R2 or BizTalk Server 2013 and that you use a WCF-BasicHttp send port to communicate with an external web service. In this scenario, if the web service returns an incorrect response (for example, an incorrect ContentType element), the WCF-BasicHttp send port instance remains in an "Active" state instead of being suspended as expected.

Note This is likely to cause a build-up in the MsgBox container. This in turn causes throttling and performance issues.
