Use the below instead. See my blog for "why".
net stop smtpsvc
cd "\Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\vsi 1"
rename BadMail Badmail-save
net start smtpsvc
cd Badmail-save
del /Q *.*
cd ..
rmdir Badmail-save

Subject: [exchangelist] Badmailadmin script 
I'm trying to run the Badmailadmin.wsf script from MS and no matter what
switches i use, I get the error of-
Err.number 6
Err.description Overflow
Err.source Microsoft VBScript runtime error
My Badmail dir is about 5gig. I'm running it locally on my Exchange 2k
post sp3 rollup server on win2k standard sp 4.
Anyone know what the reason for this error is?
Thanks alot!!
