All,

I have been getting this well known info alert in my event log, I have removed all retention polices from the mailboxes, stopped and restarted the managed folder assistant.. but still i get this every 15 minutes.

After some reading I saw others with the same notice, their fix was was to move the mailbox's to another mail store, I have 3 mail stores with around 28 boxes per store so that's not really an option. Is there way to ID what mailbox or mail store is having this problem so I can at least act on it?

I also checked the LegacyDN against the server  no user is showing up as the wrong server legacydn

Server is 2010 SP1 running under 2008 R2

The MAPI error 0x40680 means it was unable to delete something. You can face this problem specially if there any problem with mailbox store and during defrag exchange noticed it and continusly trying to resolve the corruption, the best way to troubleshoot this problem is to remove the corruptions by mfcmapi.exe on per mailbox wise or create new databases and move the mailboxes with high badlimit. and then dismount old database, rename old .edb files and mount the database again. and then remove the old databases.

This is difficult to point to a mailbox by provided data, but this issue useually comes with Discovery search mailbox, system mailbox, public folders and resource mailboxes. You can also run exbpa to find more detail of this error, check in event logs. these are the places where you can find the mailbox name which causing the issue.

thanks, I would like t know more about using mfcmapi.exe, the eventlogs such as applications and the exchange log for mailboxdatabase failures show everything as fine.

would you be able to recommend a link for a newish admin to check the above mailboxes?
