HealthMailbox is over 3 GB and growing

Hi Experts,

Exchange 2013 Enterprise and noticed today that our database HealthMailbox is over 3gb and growing at a steady rate. I've read were I can simply delete this mailbox and Exchange will recreate? Additionally, is there a way to have Exchange manage this mailbox so it doesn't get so big?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can set an archive rule. Does anyone read the data received there?
Do you simply want message solder than a certain numbers of days deleted?

Health mailbox are only used to send/receive/check connectivity. Once message has received/send or whatever, is completely useless.

You can delete al content inside mailbox or can recreate all: http://blogs.technet.com/b/admoore/archive/2015/03/11/exchange-2013-health-mailboxes.aspx
