  • Problem after archiving huge (6GB) mailbox.

    finally I persuaded a VIP to archive his mailbox that grew up to 6GB.

    I have couple of issues and related questioins.

    1. After archiving Inbox up to Jan 1 2008 there are items in both archive and Inbox dated 2005 2006 2007.

    Why it happend?
    What is a workaround to have all archived period in archive?

    2. When we checked e-mails in Inbox that suppose to be archived we found some of them with weird content in body of the message that the user declare and remember that it was valid and absolutely readable message?
    SEE BELOW the message.

    Hard to believe that archiving could cause wiping out the body and replace it by something may be related toIMF that was enabled at a time.

    Could archiving cause this problem?
    Is the content below related to IMF ?
    Also, it looks like it is just about removed attachment. And it stays in Inbox not goes to archive.

    Re: Problem after archiving huge (6GB) mailbox.

    This may or may not apply to you however Outlook 97 - 2002 has a PST (archive) file size limit of 2GB. 2003 and up has a hard limit of 20GB. So if you are having problems that may be the cause depending on which version of office/outlook you are using.
    Two things:
    1) If I wrote something wrong please please please let me know. I want to know ESPECIALLY if I am wrong.
    2) I have a tendency to write things that are misconstrued as being agressive or not so pleasant. That is not my intent.

      The mail client is OU2007.
      I know about pst size file limit and problems.

      Would like to receive more informative answers to questions.

      Thanks for trying to help.

        that 'garbage' is TRend micro Scanmail for exchange, or similar.
        When you have archived those emails, it has identified them as having inappropriat language in them, and removed those emails or attachments.

        Better tell your boss to wash his mouth out :P

        I'm sorry I can't further assist with your archiving issues. I'd suggest archiving a small amount at a time.. see if that helps

          thank you very much for the clue.
          Trend Micro for Exchange was deployed on LAN. I am saying was because the central solution now is End Point protection. But TM is still on some servers (kind of stand alone because there is no TM server on LAN but stand alone clients are updated from TM site).
          Definetely, I have to recover previous mailbox.

          I have Exchange store backup right before archiving.
          Also, I have the ost file that is not before archiving.
          I don't know if OST was stripped out by archiving.

          Do you know?

          Also, what will be the easiest way for recovery.
          To mount backup store or to try create pst from OST (I read that it is problematic).

          From your explanation I understand that TM made the nasty job during archiving and not before. Because user says the mails were OK.
          So I have a chance to recover.

          Thanks again for the tip.

            Iíve seen this many times with employees having more than 2 gb in their mailbox. When it goes over the 2gb mark, the emails start to get corrupted. You would have to use a 3rd party program to fix your problem. Here is one link you could read.
