  • Size of messages that would be moved or deleted

    Hi,

    On my own SBS 2003 I have something weird.

    After the daily mailbox management, I see the following in the e-mail :

    The Microsoft Exchange Server Mailbox Manager has completed processing mailboxes
    Started at: 2008-04-28 05:09:13
    Stopped at: 2008-04-28 05:09:19
    Mailboxes processed: 19
    Messages that would be moved or deleted: 17
    Size of messages that would be moved or deleted: 498.00 KB

    I would expect something like what a client of mine has, with the exact same settings :

    The Microsoft Exchange Server Mailbox Manager has completed processing mailboxes
    Started at: 2008-04-27 23:09:12
    Completed at: 2008-04-27 23:09:16
    Mailboxes processed: 17
    Messages moved: 20
    Size of moved messages: 9.83 MB
    Deleted messages: 12
    Size of deleted messages: 211.00 KB

    The messages are deleted and when I rerun mailbox management, I get this :

    The Microsoft Exchange Server Mailbox Manager has completed processing mailboxes
    Started at: 2008-04-28 17:58:43
    Stopped at: 2008-04-28 17:58:48
    Mailboxes processed: 19
    Messages that would be moved or deleted: 0
    Size of messages that would be moved or deleted: 0.00 KB

    Which makes sense.

    Why do I get :
    Messages that would be moved or deleted: 17
    Size of messages that would be moved or deleted: 498.00 KB

    instead of
    Deleted messages: 17
    Size of deleted messages: 498.00 KB

    ???

    Mine is SBS 2003 R2, my client has the previous, SBS 2003.

    You probably have recipient policies set up to generate a report only, rather than moving or deleting items. Check your recipient policies container, find the relevant policy, and check the setting under Mailbox Manager Settings that reads "When processing a mailbox:"

      Nope, otherwise the second run would not say 0 to everything.
      Plus, I have checked it and I have checked that e-mail do get deleted.
      Thnx anyway.

          Off the top of my head, I have no idea - and no time to look into it. But since it is a pure Exchange issue - not specifically SBS - you could try that forum!
          TIA
