sorry misunderstood your thousands of queues to mean thousands of messages
in a queue here is another option:
- You can manually delete the messages from the file
system. To do this:
a. Stop the SMTP service.
b. Rename the Queue folder in the C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\Vsi 1
folder to create a new Queue folder.
c. Restart the Microsoft Exchange System Attendant and
the Microsoft Exchange Routing Engine.
d. Start the SMTP service.
I understand your frustrations in not having a better graphical way to do
this. Good feedback like this helps us to improve products. Thanks again!
