priv.edb exceeded 16GB
Posted on 2004-11-01
I am new to exchange server.
We have an exchange server (5.5) that is used to send our company newsletters and now it has stopped responding. The event log tells me that the databases has reached it maximum size (16GB). I used to access this mail box from another computer using Microsoft outlook but then now I cannot open that - I get this error : "The microsoft exchange server computer is not available. Either there are network problems or the microsoft exchange server computer is down for maintenance"
Can you please help me with this, The mails are not important at all since they are all bounced mails and system errors.
Do you think it is a good idea to just delete the priv.edb since I do not care if the emails are lost ?how can I solve this issue? please advise
