Exchange 2003 – Deleting Badmail items

Jasons Exchange server is causing him major issues.  I’d called in to see him for lunch before I flew out to our conference the other day and  I caught him at just the wrong moment.  He was in despair..

He had just noticed that his badmail folder had thousands upon thousands of items in. He couldn’t move them and they’d been there in the queue for quite a while.  He was worried about deleting them, and also worried about the badmail folder filling up again.  Well I sat down and had a browse around the web for him and found this amazing utility which will effectively put a quota size on the badmail folder, and automatically archive them off or delete them.  So he didn’t have to do anything once he’d downloaded the tool. It only delayed us by 30 minutes – and lunch was on him… :-) 

About time too Jason – it was your turn anyway…
