Exchange queues overwhelmed by Public Folder replication

We are in the process of migrating from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2007.  We have a very large public folder structure.

I started replication to the new server, but now we have 17,000 messages clogging up our routing group connector, causing all kinds of issues with mail flow and causing blackberry messages to be horribly delayed.

Is there some sort of quick way to stop this replication and clear out the queues so I can be more granular with my replication going forward?

Thanks in advance,

Jim

To stop the replication you just remove the replicas.I think you have set the replication priority to urgent.
Its better to manually move the public folders after business hours.

Yes, I think it did.  I did remove the replicas of the largest public folders.  I then shrunk those public folders by setting the aging to 30 days and was able to replicate them later.  The key was figuring out that the replication was done via very small (300k) files via SMTP, and that pretty much clogged up the 2003-2007 traffic until it was somewhat cleared.
