How long do I have to wait after receiving the warning message about not being able to delete more than 4000 messages from my deleted items folder.

Got a message regarding deleting permanently more than 4000 emails in Outlook.  Have Exchange server 2010 mailbox.  Want to know how long do I have to wait before I can delete more emails.  Trying to clean up a large deleted items folder but can't just empty the whole folder at this point.  Thanks.

If I understand correctly, the 4000 items limit only applies to a single delete operation. Successive deletes should be able to take another 4000 items without having to wait.

Thanks but that did not appear to happen earlier when I tried it. I'll check back later in the day to see if it will allow me now...
