EV10 A6 and A7 queues not clearing down
We have 2 Exchange servers and their A6 and A7 queues look as follows.
Server 1 A6 = 10336
Server 1 A7 = 420
Server 2 A6 = 7370
Server 2 A7 = 203
These queues do change a bit, but not much, they are pretty static.
I am mainly concerned about the A6 queues at the moment. Looking in Server 1s A6 queue I can see the same messages have been stuck in there for days (or weeks).
Archiving does actually seem to be working. Looking in mailboxes you would not know anything is wrong.
The reason I stumbled across these is I was running an import of some PSTs and a lot of them were failing. While that may be unrelated, it can't be right having 10k messages in an MSMQ.
What would I need to do to get messages flowing through the A6 queue.
Also, what does the A6 queue actually do? Is it simply updating the shortcuts in the Exchange Mailbox? Has an email already been vaulted and this is just updating the mailbox? What would happen if I deleted items in the A6 queue?
