Corrupt Emails in Exchange Mailbox - cannot delete/move

One of our sites recently suffered from Exchange server corrupted on the streaming files, leaving some emails un-viewable/deletable etc.

One person has three emails in their inbox which cannot be deleted, I have tried the following:

Holding shift whilst pressing delete
Deleting through OWA
Running MFCMAPI on the mailbox (returns a bunch of errors)

Can anyone suggest any other ideas?

I have read about ISINTEG - anybody any idea on how long this would take to run on an 80gb database?

Thanks in advance

It runs at an spped of 10-12 gb per hour so in your case it would take approximately 8 hours, the command is

isinteg -s (Exchange server name) -fix -test alltests

Shivkumar, do you think this would fix it? If so what would it do, just remove it?

Yes, all the logical errors would fix the issue , you have to run isinteg command till you see 0 warnings 0 errors 0 fixes, you may run isinted maximum 3 times till you see 0 warnings 0 errors 0 fixes after the isinted command is completed.

Just to add even after running the command for three times you do not see 0 warnings 0 errors 0 fixes, the you may try to fix it by use of some third party utilities/software

Please do update about the status
