Today I got alerted that my Queues are full with many messages on both nodes.

I did a get-queue command and found this

Identity       DeliveryType         Status MessageCount Velocity RiskLevel OutboundIPPool NextHopDomain
--------       ------------         ------ ------------ -------- --------- -------------- -------------
TGCS021-N1\13  DnsConnectorDelivery Active 152          0.02     Normal    0    
TGCS021-N1\96  DnsConnectorDelivery Retry  1            0        Normal    0    
TGCS021-N1\130 DnsConnectorDelivery Retry  1            0        Normal    0    
TGCS021-N1\133 DnsConnectorDelivery Ready  47           0        Normal    0    
TGCS021-N1\145 DnsConnectorDelivery Retry  1            0        Normal    0    
Many more

How can I clear this

I tried this

remove-mssage -identity tgcs01-n1 -wthndr $false

Cannot process argument transformation on parameter 'Identity'. Cannot convert value "tgcs021-n1" to type
"Microsoft.Exchange.Data.QueueViewer.MessageIdentity". Error: "The input string supplied as a message internal
identity cannot be parsed as a long value.
Parameter name: Identity"
    + CategoryInfo          : InvalidData: (:) [Remove-Message], ParameterBindin...mationException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : ParameterArgumentTransformationError,Remove-Message
    + PSComputerName        :

I went to the Exchange toolbox Queue Viewer but that only lets you remove one at a time it would take forever to do over a 1000 of these

Any ideas
