Remove a stuck message from Exchange 2007 queues
Posted on 2009-07-15
How can i remove a mail message stuck in the submission queue in Exchange 2007.
I have tried removing through the Exchange 2007 GUI and it advises that the message can not be deleted. It just gives me an error ?
I have also tried through the exchange powershell command. This gives the impression the task has completed, and NO error message returned, but message is still stuck in the queue.
Can it be deleted by going to the queue folder on the drive itself.
I think the stuck message is causing a CPU overload on the Edgetransport.exe, so wish to clear as part of the diagnosis for this.
