We have identified that mail.que file is rapidly growing that is eating up our disk D: storage. As per checking the SafetyNetHoldTime we have found out that it is in default value (2 days)
I moved the mail.que file from disk D: to E: and used the command prompt to create a new queue database and transaction logs in a new location from D:\Microsoft to E:\Queue\QueueDB. I have Verified that the new database files Mail.que and Trn.chk exist at the new location.
The moving of mail.que to another location is a success but we have monitored that the mail.que file in the E:\Queue\QueueDB is still growing rapidly. Please see details below for our monitoring summary of mail.que file in E:\Queue\QueueDB.
After 2 hours: 13GB
After 6 hours: 29GB
After 20 hours: 87GB
After 23 hours: 95GB
The question is, is this still normal even after all the activities that we have executed above the mail.que file is still growing rapidly.
