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.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

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.
