  • Public Folders in Exchange Running slow

    I have numerous mail enabled public folders in exchange. Over the last coupel of weeks, a couple of them have started responding very very slowly. There is a lot of mail in those folders and I clean spam out daily.

    Anyone have any idea as to why it would be responding slowly? I've restarted the server and cleaned my UCE archive folder as well...

    How much do you call a lot of email? How many items?
    How large is the store?

      I'm not sure how big the store is, I don't know how to check.

      The public folder is for our orders emails, every time some one would order a product, we'd get a confirmation email that would dump into that folder. Everything from March of 2007 until now is in there. Considerably under 1GB of stuff in there.

      It seems to have sped up a bit this morning after I posted this.

      Like I said, it may just be that there is too much stuff in there and it's having to take the time to index everything, I'm not sure.

        I have a public folder on my home system with 160,000 items in it and it works fine. It is more number of items, not size. As for size of the store, that is a matter of looking at the physical files and seeing how large the pub.stm and pub.edb files are combined.

        If you have users on Outlook 2003 then indexing is pointless and should be disabled.
