Exchange Server log file growth and Outbox items ?

Hi Folks,

Does the item in the Outbox can cause email transaction log in the server growth ?

I have executed the script below:

get-mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -folderscope Outbox | Sort-Object Foldersize -Descending | select-object identity,name,foldertype,itemsinfolder,@{Name="FolderSize MB";expression={$_.folderSize.toMB()}} | Export-Csv C:\Temp\Outbox.csv

Open in new window


I have identified some users with more than 1000 emails in the outbox and also bigger than 100 MB.

ShouldI worry about this or not needed ?

Thanks,

Every transaction done in the mailbox results in a transaction written in the log files.
you will have to find out why those emails are in outbox ?

Do they really need to send emails of that much big size?

well it is not aboutthe size, because I have set the item limit to be 20 MB, only the number of email (itemcount) that is so large.

I'm not sure why would those emails stuck in the Outbox ?

I can seethat some users who connected to the Windows Server 2003 Terminal Server service, their Outlook 2007 SP3 Outbox got plenty of email stuck in there ?
