Hi,

I have a 110GB global mail box sitting in the journal. This mailbox has all the organization emails. I am trying to delete emails from the month of may 2013. After inserting the following command i am getting "there is not enough space available" error. I am using a 32-bit machine for running power shell which is separate to the exchange server.

Get-Mailbox -Identity globalmail | Export-Mailbox -TargetMailbox testuser -StartDate "01/05/2013 " -EndDate "31/15/2009 " -DeleteContent

I am then prompted for supplying values for target folder, i have just put inbox.

Global Mailbox is on the C drive of the exchange server and it has 45GB free out of 599GB

Hello,

Does the "testuser" mailbox exist? Also, you need to reverse your start and end dates. The start date should be the earliest date.

Try doing smaller chunks as the local powershell will be trying to build a list of emails to the delete them, there shouldn't be a server limitation for this.

try a few weeks, then months and increase until you have removed the period you want or figured out the limit of processing

There was typo error, the dates are between 01/05/2013 to 31/05/2013.

Testuser exists, do i need to delegate access to testuser for global mailbox

I have managed to delete the emails and the properties of global mailbox shows reduced size but the database size hasn't reduced

Global mailbox is located in a database residing in journal

your database size won't reduce down without further action as it writes out to the whiespace

if you look halfway down this technet article is shows the eseutil command

if you want to shrink it down there is an offline action to defrag is fully and compact
