    I have an account called “Log” that gets a copy of all emails sent and received. It has been ignored for some time and now is out of control. It has around 375,000 emails in the inbox. I tried to do some archiving, but it takes too long to perform. I was trying to do a month at a time, I started it Sat. @ 4pm and it was not finished as of Mon. 1 pm. When trying to archive this folder, Outlook lags for all users and is almost impossible to use. I am trying to figure out some way to get this folder back under control. I was thinking of having all emails sent to a folder, and not stored on the server, so that I can delete mail from there and not effect server performance? I also have another users inbox “administrator” that is very full. Nobody ever checks that mailbox either. What can I do to solve this? Please post some suggestions.
