I had for roughly 30 min setup and played with journaling on my exchange 2010 cas/hub. After getting a good understanding on what it did I shut everything down and thought it was all done.

Now there are roughly 200+ email in the queue for journaling and I cannot remove them. I have been  looking in the properties of an email and it stated:

"The failure was replaced by a retry response because the message was marked for retry if rejected."

Is there a cmdlet that will allow me to force or override this? I would just like them to go away.

Thanks

stop your microsoft exchange transport service
Locate the location of the queue (it's an EDB file)
Rename the folder and recreate an empty folder
Restart the transport service.
