Exchange Admin Account too large
Posted on 2011-10-20
We have a client that has an administrator account with 2.2million items in its mailbox. We want to reduce this as much as possible.
The network has 2 Exchange servers, when the new exchange server with more resource was brought in we exmerged all accounts over apart from the admin as we encountered issues doing this.
This accounts size is now growing out of control and i cant seem to figure a way to reduce the size.
I have tried to exmerge, after 9hrs of the exmerge running only 500kb of emails were moved then it crashed.
If i try to map the account to outlook to setup an archive, outlook freezes and stops responding. I have been able to get outlook open if it is left for a good 40mins to sync the account. But once in it will stop responding if i set off an archive. I have also tried creating a new .PST and drag and drop email from the inbox into the newly created PST. but the same happens, another crash.
Any ideas on what to do?
