We're having problems trying to do manual archiving runs during the day for a single mailbox using the "run now" option. It goes away and does next to nothing, despite the report mode saying that it will archive a number of MB of data.
Anyone seen this before? We're using v5 SP5.
We also had a strange thing last night where one mailbox was archived down to 14MB in size, despite the archiving rules saying that it should do no more than 50% of the quota (giving 100MB in this case). This mailbox had been over quota and we'd just reapplied the limits hoping that EV would then bring it down to 100MB...
Thanks for the responses, and I appreciate the issues surrounding limits and shortcuts.
I have a number of users (mainly managers!) whos mailboxes have grown beyond the limit, and so they've had the limits removed. Now that I'm rolling out EV I can get the mailboxes back down to size and reapply the default limits.
When I tried this I just set the warning limit to the normal value, thus putting the mailbox over limit, and then I let EV archive it using a quota based policy. What seemed to happen was that it ignored the quota bit and only stopped archiving when it hit the "don't archive anything under X weeks" rule. The mailbox was then well and truly within limit!
