One of our users has called me to say that an alerting system he set up during the week has gone manic and is spewing out thousands of messages to him. He won't be online until later to log on and stop these messages.
I'm worried that these messages will cause the DB he is on to run out of space, and also transaction log growth.#
Is there a way to reject them? I guess we can put in a transport rule, but I need to go through Change Control for that. How about disabling his mailbox, that will prevent the emails increasing the size of the edb file yeah? Will it also slow transaction log growth?
We are running Exchange 2007. But we are moving to Exchange 2010, so I'm curious to know what the solution would be for that, given that from what I've read MS recommend that the DB's use Circular Logging when in a DAG scenario with lagged copy.
