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.

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.
