Generation of logs is nothing but transaction been noted down. If some one send a message of 100 MB then you could expect 20 logs for that. some one forwards that , then again .......
so possibily a big email coming in or circling inside the org.

Subject: [exchangelist] Excessive transaction logs: corrupt messages?

I had a problem this weekend where there was an excessive amount of
transaction logs being created. I tried for hours to find the problem,
but the only thing that looked out of the norm were messages in the
queues that had no sender and I could not delete them. From that, my
only conclusion was that there were malformed/corrupt messages in the
queues creating these transaction logs. After a reboot everything
resumed to normal.

Is there a way to detect corrupt messages (incase this happens again, I
would like to pinpoint it)? Has anyone else experienced this problem, or
does it sound like corrupt messages were not at fault?

Any insight is much appreciated. Thanks
