Exchange 2013 Archive Database Queue shows a slowly increasing message count that never clears

When I run Get-Queue the archive database shows a slowly increasing message count while the main db will increase and decrease. This is a migration from exchange 2007 to 2013 and the transport Roles folder is now at 23 gig in size. This is a small server with no more then 400 mailboxes.

Any idea what I should do?

I forgot to add that we are boarder line having space issues that is causing email to stop flowing. I have moved the paging file to the E drive and have cleared 13 gig of space. at about the 4 gig free we begin to see email stop flowing.

Hey dpcsit,

Which folder under Transport Roles is filling up?

Can you post the output of Get-Queue | FL here?

Might be Health monitoring email queue.

What about health of databases ? Can you suspend for atleast 15 min & check the status.

Why are Office 365 signatures so complicated?

Trying to setup transport rules for Office 365 email signatures and can’t quite figure it out? Having to test the signature over and over? Make things simple by using Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365.

Sorry folks I found if, some mailboxes had accidentally been moved to the archive database. Once I moved them to the correct database the queue started clearing up.
